some days.


some days
the sun hides behind clouds
the clouds hide behind grey
the sky falls a little darker

the air is too thin
or too thick
it never matters which

the rain lingers above
or crashes down
it never matters which

either way I cry
a drizzle of tears
or a deluge
it never matters which

and I search
for love
or peace
or happiness

it never matters which
because I cannot find
or peace
or happiness

some days
I live among the clouds
I hide behind the grey
I fall a little darker

and I wonder
if it is time to stop
chasing the light
that I will never reach

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes 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 Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. 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.

    This is a beautifully written poem, it flows so well. It is so very sad and bleak, however… I wish the sun would come out from behind the clouds today. xo

    • Thank you… I was not feeling great last night when I wrote it…

      The literal sun is fucking bright today. And my entire yard… path, driveway, doorsteps… all covered in ice because we changed to rain yesterday…. then the temp went down to 15 last night. It’s recovered to a whopping 19. Good times.

  3. Never stop chasing the light! Elusive? Seem out of reach? Maybe. But never stop chasing it.
