A Necklace Of Clouds - Poem by Shaun Shane

i use to
love a
girl who
wore
a necklace
of clouds

and since
she was almost always
of a
sunny disposition
mostly they'd be pure
and white

but sometimes on
her becoming
sad
they
would rain

or sometimes
she'd become
angry and they'd
storm
which she didn't like
being girlishly vain
because
the lighting would strike
her skin
leaving scars

but
there was one time
i saw them snow

the time
i told her
i cheated on her
with her best friend

and they snowed
and snowed
and snowed
and snowed
until it covered
her up and she died
from exposure

and after she died
since she never told
anyone i cheated on her
her family gave the necklace
of clouds to me

and i put it on
and it snowed
and snowed
and snowed
and snowed
until i died from
exposure
too

so now
when you
approach me
you will see
that coldness
in my eyes
and that cloud
of frost when i
speak

because
no longer is there
any warmth
in my body
to thaw my breath

because
my
heart is
frozen

    Love the depths and honesty and indelable haunt that self serving doth reward.
    No doubt, I have met a poet.

    I have similar memories, but I had forgotten them before I read this. I felt them again for a moment, so thank you...I hurt somone once by telling secrets that I could have kept to myself, but an obscure sense of honor pushed me to tell, I think. Actually, I hurt many people in just the same way and as I was writing this, i thought, its funny how one forgets one's greatest wrongs until another brings the sadness back to mind. Anyway, just thought i'd share, take care. (Report) Reply
