i don't understand

this weekend was a doozy. it was possibly the worst weekend i've ever experienced, and spilled right on over to today. in fact, today was possibly the worst day of my life.

we've been dealing with an awful lot in our corner of the world over the past few days. and i simply don't understand why things happen, and why they don't happen.

the raindrops are like the tears
dripping down my face.
though they are intermittent
the cloud cover remains.
my heart bursts open
flooding anew
and the puddles on the ground
grow larger.

i sleep to escape
the nightmare
my life has become.

hope you had a better monday
than i did.
