365 Days Overcast

365 Days Overcast

A sprinkle of hope, 

The pretence of new beginnings.
A myriad of heavy truths.
Endless silence,
Seclusion like never before.

Gratitude for verdure,
A spillage of intrusive thoughts.  
Longing for touch,
Reminiscing about before. 

Chaos,
Misfortune,
Unexpected tears.
Skipped songs because of past lovers,
Rainfall, sunshine,
Impending storms (and fears).

Celebrations behind closed doors,

Goodbyes through a window.
The smell of him leaving my bed.
Blurred vision from the smoke.

Waking up on the wrong side,
A day after the downpour.
But, letting go. 

Making friends with the rain.
Romanticising solitude, patience.
Finding comfort in the stillness.
Understanding the pain. 

Salvaging the self,
Leaving them behind.
Being one with the wind,
Remedying from within.
