    Like A Storm Cloud

    I am like a cloud: Shapeless, always shifting
    people look at me and see a myriad of different
    things
    Yet I remain, always there: High on your memories
    floating in the air

    When my soul feels heavy and dark
    the raindrops fall
    but what happens when the tears disappear
    before they fall?
    The burning heat of my raw passions
    has evaporated the condensation of my soul

    When the sun comes out the light chases me
    away
    I’m all but invisible at night, but I won’t even come near
    the brightness of a sunny day

    I hear the whispers in the middle of a thunderstorm
    I’m tranquil in the midst of turbulence
    I’m made up of ice particles, how could I not be cold?
    The more I see the world, the more I dread growing old

    I am like a cloud: Silent, seductive, hypnotic
    people are infatuated to find out what makes me up
    but the truth would mystify and frighten them

    I’m becoming contaminated by the atmosphere around me:
    Releasing acid rain on the earth in the form of this paper and ink
    so for what it’s worth, people can feel my pain
    and release the weights, so in sorrow I won’t sink

    People won’t notice until I disappear for good
    when I’m gone I think they’ll miss me.
