SADNESS AND A CLOUD

SADNESS AND A CLOUD

A Poem by theabstractink

I am a cloud, crying somewhere in a corner, waiting to burst and explode

I know that the sadness inside of me cannot be held in anymore , it has to be let out for me to feel free again


I know how it feels like to carry a heavy burden on my shoulders and to feel a certain way of despair lurking every time when I try to search for happiness and peace. 

Whenever it thunders, a shiver spikes up in my nerves and reminds me of all the times I have felt a pang of hurt and pain mixed with lifelong regrets


But what is the life of a cloud if it doesn’t burst and cry its heart out once in a while?

The rain drops- an instilling silhouette of my tears- are like drops of satisfaction and joy for humans, making them all dance to its tunes 


I feel happy looking down at the picturesque wondering that even though each one of them is going through their own share of pain, tears of my sadness are the reason behind their dance and smiles. 


Don’t think that it means that i will cry every time i am sad, it has only made me bolder and now i can face the thunder head on 


Sometimes I cannot stop myself from crying and i don't even want to but i realize that now i am strong enough to face the thunder head on and turn it into a smile when the first ray of sunshine beams and brightens my gray nights

How about the difficulty in getting criticism at work. I don't do well with that at all

Of course! What is the life of the cloud if it doesn't let rip! This is such brilliant poetry, I'm just stunned. You did such a fantastic job of show not tell! Are you published? If yes, please do share.
