An Honest Mistake - Poem by TP Sage

It rained this morning.
I could have sworn
I saw you dancing
in the puddles
water trickling from your hair
like teardrops.

I could have sworn
I heard you laughing
at the thunder
your eyes afire
reflecting the lightning
like mirrors

I thought to join you.
I even looked for our umbrella
but it wasn't where you'd left it
Still, I had to join you.
So I dashed outside
into the rain.

I looked for you beside the puddles
but I didn't see you dancing.
I was puzzled for a moment
Till I remembered that you'd left me
And I remembered you don't love me

I felt so silly
thinking that I saw you
An honest mistake
I'm sure,
but I stood there beside the puddles
listening for your laughter in the thunder

water trickling from my hair
into my eyes
and down my cheeks
like teardrops.
