Thunder Was Booming

Thunder was booming.

Rain was pouring.

I had no coat.

I was soaked.

But I knew where I was going.

I was going to the home of the one

Who had my heart.

They had moved on months ago,

And I was stuck in a mental cage

Surrounded by memories

Missing the happiness I felt

While with them.

Thunder was booming.

Rain was pouring.

I walked and walked

Not wanting to get the bus

My determination

Gave me strength to walk

For over an hour

In this horrible weather

All I could think was

“I’m going to get you back,

No matter what it takes.

It was me that messed up,

And I’m paying for it.

But I will get you back.”

Thunder was booming.

Rain was pouring.

Your house is finally in sight.

I run and ring the doorbell

Over five times.

I see the lights are on so I know

You are in.

You open the door and stare at me.

Water is running down my face,

But I don’t care.

The first thing I managed was

“I was an idiot. I don’t want everything

We built to crumble because of me.

I just-”

You pull me into the house

Before I could finish saying

What I had to say.

“You really are an idiot. You’re going

To get the flu or something worse!”

I hang my head, then you smile.

“You’re my idiot. I’m sorry too.

I was going to call you today,

I wanted to call every day

Since we split.

I just decided to give you space.”

Thunder was booming.

Rain was pouring.

I was warm in a woolly tracksuit

I left here months ago.

We were snuggled on your couch

With hot chocolate,

Our free hands in each others.

I smiled, so glad I made the decision

To get you back.

You will always be my everything.

And even though I was afraid

Of being rejected,

I was determined to try anyway.

Love always finds a way.

Love is my religion.

That is my decision.

The way of life I know and the blessings I’ve been given.

I don’t give a damn about the wars and politicians

As long as I feel love I’m in a pretty blessed condition.

Going to church and all sorts that was a tradition,

As I grew older I kind of felt suspicion.

Killing for your God puts you in a dumb position,

And if you mess that up then you’re deffo off to prison.

Love I always feel it’s like an aim or my ambition,

To give it and to spread it is my focus and my vision.

All I Can Do Is Sigh

All I Can Do Is Sigh

They say being honest is the right thing.

That if you lie, it will only lead to something bad.

Especially when they find out the truth.

So let me ask you.

When you’re completely honest with someone

And it still leads to something bad,

Was being honest still the right thing??

I’m trying hard to understand what happened.

Not one lie I told.

And suddenly, because I was honest,

They didn’t even scold.

They went silent, disappeared.

They just went away.

I was surprised I do admit it…

I was so upset today.

I thought that they had left my life,

Slipped away for good.

I wondered if it was vice versa,

If I did that- well, I could?

But it’s not me to be so cold

I’m a really positive person.

Besides, my day had started crappy…

I didn’t think it would worsen.

They contacted me twelve hours later,

With calmness but frustration

I responded just as calmly to them

And with no hesitation

I asked if they regret our friendship

To which they replied no

I was relieved myself and then they asked

If I really thought they’d go.

That question washed away the sadness

A bright smile on my face

And I wondered if I’d thought too soon

That they’d scarper like on a race.

The relief hit me hard, hard like a rock,

And now I want to cry.

Happy tears, heart full of love…

All I can do is sigh.
