Rapidly Cooling #senryu

Wake in hope
Last night was perfect
You are gone

***

This was written for Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge.  This week the theme was “The Day After”.  I chose a senryu, which is like a haiku but is a more personal poem which can be about love and often contains irony.  I chose the 3/5/3 format.

      Yeah, darn… But then, there was always the night before ;) Thanks, Diana. My first thought on seeing the prompt was the movie of that name, but I thought this was better way to go, though I’m sure it might feel like getting struck by a nuclear bomb.
