#196 of 365 – “lead weight”

 “lead weight”


brooding clouds torment the dusk

till he cries


and runs off to nighttime

where he cowers and hides


like me, he is angry

at the strength of his fears


and ashamed

at the heavy lead weight of his tears


nighttime tries to fill him

with all of her stars


tries to give him new music

for his sad repertoires


but his ballads lead always

to the blackness of night


where his sorrows run naked

until morning light
