It’s Saturday, I jest, It is Friday night and this girl, she has some plans with her ladies tomorrow. Which may or may not include some day drinking. I wrote this tonight ( Friday ), and will probably write tomorrow, but it may not be coherent, so unlike every other day, I prepared myself. I also included some of my poetry pictures I post on my RAWrWords Instagram account. Because sometimes I write short bursts of emotion.
Happy Saturday friends.
The sound of rain tapping against a window usually has a way of calming my overburdened mind. Ordinarily, my heart warms at the thought of watching each drop fall from the sky. I envision rain filled showers wash away the grime of a dust-filled world. I often imagine these tear-shaped droplets have the power to refresh my weary soul.
Raindrops pang on my window.
I longingly look through the prismatic glass, hoping to catch a reflection of the girl I once deemed I was.
She’s gone, at least for tonight, for now.
Tonight, there is a sadness eating me from the inside, and with every water filled bead that lands against the glass, I notice the tears rising in my eyes.
Drop by effervescent drop, I catch reflections of darkened eyes consumed by my wandering mind. My energy is overwhelming and full; my thoughts are rushing. The inside of my mind, louder than the rain smashing against my saturated window.
It’s one of those nights. I wish to wallow in sadness, to feel the pain I so firmly believe I deserve.
I catch a glimpse of a prism as I follow a raindrop making its way to the bottom of the window pane. The street light in the distance is playing the role of the sun, and in an instant, a hint of beauty, despite the dark in my heart. A rainbow of color blinds my heavy eyes, reminding me there is grace in a rain-drenched night.
Even one full of reflection and soulful perspectives.
The rain has become the tears I won’t shed, the sorrow I won’t bestow, not even upon myself. There is harmony in every moment, even the times that cause me to reflect upon the melancholy resonating inside me.
