Time Departed

I am time departed.
A late summer day
when the dark clouds of autumn
lurk in the distance.
I am loss and heartache.
I am ineptitude and despair.
I am the schoolyard bully–
teasing and taunting.
A cruel reminder of the promises to yourself
that you failed to keep;
the empty promises you will continue to make.
Your burning hopes and dreams
smoldering into ashes–
dancing wildly in the cold winter wind.

New blog. New me. A new attempt to write thirty mediocre poems in thirty days for napowrimo. My husband’s response to this poem? “It’s gloomy.” I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but he didn’t say it was awful, so I figured I’d go with it.
