Where is a downer, indeed.
Very nice. I kind of get whats going on, but not really, but just enough.
I like that in a poem.

Love the title, actually; I love the parts added in italics, it breaks it away enough, that the poet (you) are going back and forth to who you're talking to. Like your personal thoughts on the situation, that you'd rather not share with anyone but yourself.

Excellent poem here. I really like how it goes along. Some of my favorite lines, because of the imagery mixed with meaning, were as follows..."As the summer air melted away the tension"
"To nothing more than a pocket-sized photo"
"Before the seasonal hurricanes got the worst of us"
However, (from my unexperienced eye)there are a few flaws. I want to say, that the favorites above all used the imagry mixed with the meaning well...if you could use that more often, I think it could just strengthen this poem. And another thing that brought me down a bit (no pun intended), was the title. It didn't have the appeal that it could, I believe. It caught my eye, but it didn't feel like it had meaning in accordance to the poem. Though I say this, I am very much guilty of the same crime. Live with it.
