On being the sun momentarily

On being the sun momentarily

A Poem by ABitBrokenPoetry

Someone I loved temporarily
Once called me sunshine
And I smiled as brightly as I could 
For as long as I could for him
And I tried to pretend I was the sun
Just as he thought I was
But he failed to see the storms
Brewing within my eyes 
All the rainwater I swallowed 
Until we were standing ankle deep in it
And once it started raining, it didn’t stop
For months, years even
He stopped calling me sunshine
And eventually grew tired of dog paddling 
To stay afloat
It wasn’t his fault, I don’t blame him
He had probably never met someone 
Who could shine as brightly as I could at times
Then cause the most destructive of storms

I left one day and the water went with me
Drained out of our apartment
And flooded the street
We both moved on

But it was nice being the sun
For a moment.

Relationships are difficult to deal with in the best of times and with the best of people. I am hopeful that your sun can shine more and more frequently so all can enjoy. Nicely written. Temp
