December falls


wp-1481516356499.jpgWhy does December fall like rain?
A chest of tears collected over the year, bursts open
Dew slides off a million bent grass blades
and they become razors again

The year in repose lets down its hair
its feet heavy over the laughter
Hard hands blot out the moonlight
and the sunshine

Life gets stuck in frames
unable to change or move on
Gray smudges the black

Colour filters might enhance subdued cheeks
but Time, tired of its seasons, lies back
and lets the rain have its way
How it pours!

In its washed out silence
ruthless, unabated
We become cold victims
unable to make the sounds
necessary for living
