Saturation of Contrast

I hear the thunder meddling
its way among the raindrops
that permeate through sunlight
and realize
that the weather is a motif
for God's emotional prognosis.

God is but a seaman;
he and I stammer upon the same boat.

Our existence makes a pair
of helplessly hanging doppelgangers,
orbs of confusion that contract
whiplash with every turn they make.

Two repressed housewives
that put all their hopes and dreams
in a shit-stained smile.

This collision of light and malevolance
is but His way of symbolizing
my shame-patronized indecision
in a way that makes people tear up
at the joy of beauty.

  2. I really like the fourth stanza.

    I'm a bit confused about your relationship to God in this poem, though. Is he your equal, suffering along with you? Or is he chiding you?

    Oh, and you misspelled 'malevolence.' :)

  3. he suffers with me, the thunder contrasting with the sunlight is his manner of connecting with me, not some way to taunt my emotions.
