Though the house looks beautiful,
I am more drawn to the darkened skies.
Pulled in by the bare trees that seem
to go on forever.
This is me. This is the way the world
looks to me, at me.
Someone pretty to look at but intriguing
because of all the darkness that surrounds
my very being.
Everyone wants to put leaves on the trees,
turn the skies blue, when I prefer
the bareness and stormy clouds.
