Sometimes the seasons do not change
and for the crowds, for the sunshine
for fevered talk of heat waves and off days
I still sit, cloudy and dark as the winter

The sun is blinding, headache inducing
the crowds gather and a lump rises
in my throat – they are only obstructive
not indicative, of a brighter time

From my bedside I long to be grateful
for the sun spilling onto my covers
and yet I stay here, to avoid the crowds
to avoid the storm brewing inside of me
