Mislead by a deceitful sun
that exploited my desire
for warmth, and lured me outside.

Fooling me with an empty promise of
delivering
this incomparable sensation
one gets
as warmth settles on one’s skin,
and spreads through all layers
until endorphins kick in,
catapulting you into
this glorious
cosy-lazy-drowsy state
of pure well-being.
Liar!
