breaking point

look at that cloud
heavier and heavier it gets
stealing a little bit 
from the sun, every day 
until it's completely blotched out

carry an umbrella around warily
you never know when 
it's going to burst
a cloudburst , they say 

you know when it's coming
there's an ocean within 
about to erupt 

giant drops fall noisily
one by one
at my feet
from my cheek
