poetry

I loathe the sun

But soft, what light through wonder window breaks?
‘Tis the east, and the sun is here
To ruin my sleep. 

Daylight is cruel, demanding
too much of what I don’t have
Be human it says
Be aliveI am here
bright
and burning
so burn with me.

And I want nothing more
than to shut it out
to shut out the world
and live under cover of rain clouds
operating by light of the moon.

  1. So you live in the Pacific Northwest right? That just might be the right spot for you. 😀

    I like a rainy or cloudy day, probably because here they aren’t the most common, except for this time of year. (It’s been great lately).

Squeak or shout, I'm listening.
