‘when it rains’

company website note: this is not about the breakup of a romantic relationship.

buy topamax (topiramate) i just happen to love in a big way all the people in my life.

you have been gone

so why

is this goodbye so hard.

you are connected to nothing now, except my broken heart.

which i have stapled back together.

it is crude, but does the job

although, i admit, i’m tired of the way the sutures rub

against unexpected memories

who uninvited call. their rough, persistent knocking

rattles pictures on the wall

that i had hung to

fill the void

that lingered when you left.

perhaps they were substitutions but, i took what i could get

when the waterstains became

like old familiar friends;

points in conversations before i saw the end

of everything i trusted

in every thing you said.

the lines i carried with me and let sleep in my head

under blankets of indifference

to every fault you wore,

like i could make a difference

at the corner store with a bottle of compassion

to be poured into your soul

as if small town deals and passion

would make you want to know

that i don’t care for this vivid pain to show.

still, i love the Sun more

when it rains.

‘poured’ taken from 22:14 in the psalms.
