Disappointment

I was told the rains would come

Today.

I waited until night set in

With stars shining in the

Darkness.

-------------

The rains did not come.

-------------

A burning started in my chest,

Pain like a fire upon my heart,

Breaking and dropping bleeding, black shards

To the emptiness at the bottom of my

Soul.

----------------

Waiting, wanting the rains

That would never come.
