A Drizzly LanesteemCreated with Sketch.

in poetry •  23 days ago 


Rain darkens
A mirror
Of memories—

A rainy day,
Where I revisit
Our history...

And this time
Don't walk away.

I explore the empty places
In my heart—
Times we were together,
But now apart.

As the foghorn echoes my grief
With the lonely sound of the sea,

And the sobbing
Waves and weeds

Are the sad music of my dreams.

Our love notes
Drenched in rain
In a fog of pain;

And at the end of words
You leave

And I'm trapped
In a maze of grief...

Lost in a drizzly lane,
Alone with the mist and pain.
