whispering to monster

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

I'd rather be alone than lonely
sit in a window sill on a rainy day
and feel nothing but pitter patter pitter patter

hold the dark close to me
whisper to the monsters that it will be alright
      I will love them

trading rocks through the streets
rough gentle way comforting everything
the rain shatters out a million dreams
      that break my eyes

rain boots and slickers
spattered nights of reading
lovers quiet under blankets
caught in the rain
that laugh when I tell them stories of
rats fleeing gutters
an old man who is stronger than he
remembers

how the distance is less
if you promise to never arrive

how the promise of goodbye
sings without joy

the memories reflect, broken
in the rained out window panes

rainbows broken

suns come and go

the shadows are hidden and
revealed
       and hidden

I listen to the breaking of the leaves

I don't know how I missed this one! Excellent work. I can feel the mournful reflectiveness.
