in cloud by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his verse:


when I’m happy in the darkness you blind me with bright light
when I bask in warm sunshine you wrap me in cold night

when I dream of song and laughter you wake me with a jolt
when I do everything I can for you it seems it’s all my fault

when I gaze up at the blue sky you envelop me in cloud
when I meditate in silence you tell me I’m too loud

when you say you’ll spend your life with me I know for sure you won’t
when you tell me that you love me I know for sure you don’t

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
