When the Sun did not visit
When I was amidst those
Carrying cloud clover...
Waiting for rain to support them,
As they searched for darkened shadows
To share discouragements!
Peace it did...
Untethered with life defined.
And enjoyed between downpours,
I could not pretend existed any longer!
I was drenched with emotions,
And bitter I stayed wet too long!
Camouflaging my tears,
And blaming it on bad weather!
And I don't do what I did before it came!
I don't stand in the rain and complain!
