I died a little inside

In the silence of sadness, what will the winds bring tomorrow? In the sadness of silence, my soul sighs soft breaths of sorrow. Where did those rainbows go, reminiscing happier times? Thunder brings further misery - am I victim of my own crimes? I must have betrayed the sun, for it offers no sanctuary. Moon refuses to shine in the darkness, since when were you my adversary? When there was love, it never rained so violently. Winds would come and go, fading away so silently. Mind drowns in a somber cesspit, struggling to cope with your demons of pride. I don't know what I've become, since you left, I've died a little inside.
Simple Musing Silent One 7 February 2019 Example for I died a little inside contest.

Wow! You captured dark feelings and dark times. Loved how you placed difficult feelings of abandonment, loneliness, and loss, next to the darker parts of nature. The storm is not over just yet. “I am a victim of my crimes” is something we can all relate to as we see our faults and blame ourselves with no way of fixing it. Good rhyme scheme... lots of time spent on this one. Excellent.

Your words caress the lowly spirit with understanding. Maybe love just made those violent rains less noticable then ;) I am glad to have read from you S1.

Your usual lovely writing. Par of us dies inside when someone we care about leaves us, but sometimes it causes us to forgive and toughen up.
