Dark Skies

I lie here staring out my window

Watching, waiting for the storm to pass

Droplets of rain cascade from the sky above

It isn’t long before my own droplets plummet from the only source that admired your beauty

Screams of lightning illuminate the skies, demanding vivid views

My screams match not only the storms, but your deep infuriated ones as well

The thunder echoes throughout the dull sky

My strained voice replays in my head, begging you to set me free from this sensational heartbreak

I lie here staring out my window

Watching, waiting for the storm to pass

Only to perceive dark skies ahead
