Spring Thoughts

It will be a Thursday.

It will be a Thursday
when I let go of this
unusually tragic moment.

It will be a Thursday
when the light strikes
the window just right
and I realize that there is
nothing left to do here.

It will be a Thursday
when I cut loose and
let myself dream of
tall buildings and new faces

It will be a Thursday
when I leave the rational
arguments behind like
inconveniently parked cars.

It will be a Thursday
when I say goodbye to
this lonely little house
and cast myself into
a brand new world.

I was back to school days, leaving college....or a dozen other leavings. I loved the "rational arguments like / inconveniently parked cars", and your repeated use of "It will be a Thursday" completely lent the right tone to this poem. Loved it!

Ahhh! This is so sweet and perfect! I honestly love this...it's so wistfulish and growing upish...its beautiful :)

I really admire your poetic style, and was so happy to see this latest addition. You're style adds to its poignancy. I especially like that last stanza. Hope to read more from you soon!

I've always loved your poetry. This one is no exception--in fact, I think, it may be one of my favorites. It's so masterful, and emotive. I feel everything you're describing. Just gorgeous, Raine.

It's so nice to read your poetry again! It feels so professional! I absolutely adore it! I really liked your repetitiveness.... Sometimes that's annoying and so it's really difficult to pull it off! I think you definitely pulled it off!!!!
