dark rain.

dark rain.

when you left
you stole my sunshine
leaving me cold and lonely
in the dark rain
breaking my fragile heart
like shattering glass
the pieces left behind
cutting me
with every step I take
to reclaim my brilliant light
but you have forgotten
that I find strength
beyond yours
in darkness.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
