The Weeping Sky

Poeticnurse is a Student Nurse studying for her BSc at the university of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

I saw the sky weeping
so heavily that it made an ocean out of it,
It reminded me of ME,
how I wept a bucket full of tears
to ease off my pains
Which made us even "I thought".
Dear weeping sky,
Cry your waters of heaven on me,
Let me get wet in the memories of your season,
washed clean forgetting the hurts
with my eyes closed,
I'll lay at the bank of the ocean
I'll give ears to your whispers,
The feelings, the aura,
The smiles, the roses,
the promises made to me
I should remember no more
should be flushed into the ocean of forgetfulness.
But pain wears us its scar,
Its existence is unforgettable!
Yet, within us lie the ability of not letting it
fall our walls like that of Jericho.
