The Grey.

2016-09-16 18 FRAMED CREAMLINE

Every silver lining has a cloud
A lingering shadow
That lours indefinitely,
Obscuring the illumination
Of life and hope;
Building and darkening
Until the weight becomes a burden
That can no longer be held within.
The shedding of tears —
Whether a murky storm or a grey, misty veil —
Brings release,
Casting off the condensation
Of disillusion and misery,
Their pent-up vapours
Now tangible and cleansing.
