Sometime Sunshine

traces linger
like fingerprints on the windowpane
before the rain

no tears – only pain
as fragile as droplets from the sprinkler
in the wind

losing count of the years
can’t believe how long it’s been
yet every now and then I still yearn for your radiance
my sometime sunshine

I have a burning desire
even though I know you’ll never again
light my fire

and on days when I have encounters
I find I’m reluctant to give my all
and can’t help but tread carefully
as if upon a quagmire

    I really enjoyed this poem. Sometimes, we try to cling onto something that doesn’t actually belong to us anymore, and we feel as though nothing can ever properly replace it.
