shadow.

i never see the cloud forming.
i never hear the rumbles,
as the sky descends
and the world is a shadow.

it is too much to ask.
i can’t. i can’t. i can’t.
i cry.

it is too much to ask,
that i keep my head
upright, treading water.

it is too much to ask,
i am sinking
and i do not trust myself not to succumb.

i never see the cloud forming.
i never hear the rumbles,
as the sky descends
and my world is a shadow.
