Rainy days

By , Denver, CO
I can’t pretend
That you aren’t on my mind
I don’t bother
To hide my feelings
Welling up on the inside
Or the teardrops
Running down my cheeks
Like the currents in the cobalt sea
I allow myself
To cry right along with the sky
And I still find myself wishing
That you were all mine
The sky opens its greying eyes
And drenches the earth with its tears
I let them soak me
I let regret saturate me
It seeps through my veins
And courses through my blood
Pounding on the walls of my heart
Screaming that I was wrong
And they were right all along
The storm harmonizes with my mood
It hums its thunder and snaps the lightning
As I cry that I have finally lost you
They warned me that it would happen
Lies rolling off their lips
Turned into truth penetrating into my soul
I can’t even feel my own tears
For the clouds have a bigger burden
They must carry the weight of the world
They cry louder and deeper than me
I splash through my tears
And catch my reflection staring at me
Reminding me that I must move on
Or drown in the tears of the world
So many in comparison
I put my mask of happiness
Squaring my shoulders
A walking towards sunshine
That slowly peeks its way
Around the sullen clouds
Lifting my mood
With each burst of its glorious rays
Whispering that hope is on its way
