Sunny Umbrella

​She said you wouldn’t understand

You shield your heart from sorrow, i shield mine from all that is grand

In my darkness i am content…safe

Within your righteous rainbow i am out of place

The vibrancy of your colors is a light of hope that is too often extinguished and I’ve no desire to adjust my eyes again

So I’ll stay here, in the dark, where it is safe, until my days are at an end

And as she walked away, umbrella up on a sunny day, there was nothing i could say

For i too feared what was grand and the race to attain it

My eyes were tired from the constant dilation due to disappointment, the vibrancy of my colors flaring up and sputtering out

As she walked the way i saw the beautiful sadness of understanding how cold the world is and her choice in how to navigate it
