Drowning Wait

5462907454_892d5dc69d_bI was waiting outside
in the cold, relentless rain
I waited for hours
Again and again
Waiting for the sun
that never came
So don’t tell me it gets better
Because it never did
The shower crept up my toes
Covered my eyes and filled my nose
The water drenching my lungs I didn’t oppose
So now I am nothing more
than the puddle you see on the floor
on those cold, rainy days
Maybe now they’ll remember me
Remember me always
