Cloudy Day

Clouds of pain

Push light away

And cover up the sky

Raining down shredded pieces

Of my tear stained soul

Pieces of my ashen heart

Now refuse to beat

The blood still flows

But life has left

An emptiness behind

Each day gets harder

Somehow I’m still standing

As time rushes by

Leaving me in a vortex of hurt

And I keep wondering why

Never before had I questioned

Becoming who I am

Now those choices used against me

Valued less and less

All I’m offered are cliches

Given in love with good intent

But all the silver linings

All the promises of a future

Don’t make the present alright

Disrespected and mistreated

The feelings burn like fire

Too easy to stop

But I can’t because that isn’t who I am

Punishment received undeserved

Must be met with dignity

Until the autumn of my suffering

Gives way to Winter’s white

Then the slate will be clean

I’ll be free again

To walk beneath the light

But today there is no sun

Only clouds

Clouds of pain


About The Lost Poet

I write because I find inspiration. It is my hope that through my writing some connections may be felt. Everything I write comes from my experiences with life, and with the people that I love. I try to remember to see myself in everyone, and everyone in myself.
