The Daily Post prompt is: Pensive.


Thoughts run,

rain in the gutter,

overflowing storm drain,

steady drip of a leaky tap.

Noise beats,

frightened wings on glass doors,

tread of an unwelcome visitor,

doors banging in a draught.

Tears fall,

hands wring,

voice cracks,

strength fails,

dawn breaks,

And the cold bites,

even when May flowers bow and scrape

before the inevitable.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
