a Poem by Raquel Swann

crawl inside myself,

waiting for a storm to pass

it’s been pouring for weeks

when will it pass?

So I think,

What if it never does?

Sadness settles in my heart,

As cloud after cloud appears,

I force a smile,

but the gray knows me too well.

Can’t fake my way out,

this time.

It’s not like it used to be.

I’d dance in the rain,

lighting didn’t scare me.

those days of invincibility

are long gone.

I cling tightly to familiar,

fear over life

life over death

death over hope
