High as a Kite

Did you see my anger?

Did you notice my pain?

Did you know because of my heartbreak,

I’ll never be the same?

I want to have so many pointless conversations.

But they would only add to my confusion.

The duality of my emotions and confessions.

Are only outdone by the millions of questions.

You just seemed to move on so quick.

And that made me sick to my stomach.

Your words landed on my brain like bricks.

And I wished mine did the same. I wish they clicked.

You didn’t get it and probably never will.

And that has me reeling and rolling still.

But even as my emotions spill and spill.

I have to admit I still haven’t had my fill.

As I closed in on your location.

My body was shaking.

My mind and heart were racing.

But that wouldn’t deter me from the high I was chasing.

And believe me: I was as high as a kite!

Tell me how something so wrong can feel so right!

I just wish that the moment could last all night!

You said “It’s not a good idea” and you were right.

You were warm, to my surprise.

But confusion sat in your eyes.

And when we spoke, tears flowed from mine.

And it made me realize.

That gone was the anger.

Gone was the pain.

I forgot that I was heartbroken.

But we’ll still never be the same.

Torrential Downpour by Kamrin Johnson

It’s been raining non stop since May

The clouds hang over everyday

When will the downpour end?

Because I’m sick and tired of this trend.

Sometimes they part and reveal a ray.

But even that can’t keep the droplets at bay.

Occasionally the clouds grow large and dark.

Anger and pain are their only hallmark.

These storms are violent and brash.

Lightning flashes and thunder crashes.

But these storms provide healing for my core

So I’ll continue to face this torrential downpour
