i left you out

in the rain

so you bled and ran

like the wet ink in my notebooks

that were left by my open window last night

and the earth, my dreams my cheeks

tears ran down all of it

i left you out in the rain

and you bled

into my


the air circumvents my lungs

vibrating harshly

like violent daylight

like surreal twilights

the sun and the moon

laugh at the edge of the earth

and you are the dust

left in the fuzzy night sky

and you are the fire

left in the bloody psychedelic

sunset, as the sun offers

the west a cloak of new colors

you are angry as you fire

down the mountains, to young to

realize you’ll be back tomorrow

you are too cold as you freeze

underneath the gaze of the misty clouds

crying upon you

because I left you

out in the rain

thanks. and about the spacing, i guess that's the way that it got posted. i didn't originally space it that way when i wrote. but i do agree. it's kind of distracting.

I really love this poem! The words you use are perfect. One thing that maybe you could change is the spacing between the lines. It kind of distracted me a little bit,  but that isn't something that really changes the poem. You did a great job!
