droplets of water strike
my room window
harder than usual.
there’s a storm outside
as well as inside.
rain is supposed to make sleeping
easier but my thoughts
seem to be louder than thunder.
a young soul’s weeping
won't deter the storm one
bit. it’s relentlessness forces
the noise i want to let out
my iphone chimes.
the nerves in my hand tingle
as they feel the vibration.
an instagram notification letting me know
that the one who broke my heart
also liked my picture.
i laugh as i go through your posts.
things aren’t the way you put them out
to be online honey.
oh, how you’d wish they were that way.
subtweets upon subtweets
about how much i hurt you
that matter more than the fact
that i genuinely tried.
had to swallow every problem
you brought upon the table, and naively
i was good to you, not realizing
how toxic our thing was for me.
but i needed you back then.
i wanted this.
it’s all past tense now.
i realized i don’t.
the droplets get quiet as i realize
that no ******* longer
am i going to let you play victim
when you’re the one who dealt the bad cards
oh, would you look at that,
the thunder stopped.
i suppose my realization is the
rainbow that comes after the storm.
