i mean

i love rainy days
and no,
i don't mean that like you're a rainy day
i mean that rainy days and monsoon seasons
were the only thing that kept me sane
i love rainy days
but i loved you, past tense,
staying in bed made more sense
when the sky was grey
thunder made my heart feel something
that wasn't just broken or empty or heavy
you held an umbrella over my heart
but it was already shriveled, too dry to function
a barely existent heartbeat
revived by lightning flashes
i love someone else
and so do you
and no,
i don't mean that like it's a bad thing
i mean that i wish you would have told me sooner
when your love left.
