Damn Rainbow!

Damn Rainbow!

Today ... the sun was shining brightly ... wonderful to see when you've felt as down as I have.  In fact ... I was feeling a rainbow coming on ... to brighten my mood once again.

Didn't happen.  Damn rainbow fell, busted in a damn million pieces before ... it stretched out this far to ... reach me.  So, my mood isn't sad anymore ... it's ... sadder.

Sadder for the lost of a friendship I think I would have liked to had.  A person I truly enjoyed talking to ... I rarely do that in person ... with anyone.  I stay to myself.  It's rare that I like someone ... I mean I 'like' everyone ... but ... LIKE ... someone.

It's nothing I've done personally ... it's from something else that I had nothing to do with.  Now ... it is impossible for a friendship to form ... but, you know ... life happens.  Damn rainbow ...

I knew for sure those happy colors were going to touch me ... brighten my mood ... even the sunshine only came out today when I wasn't looking!  I just saw it as it went back behind the clouds.  I'm the one who wanted sunshine ... I'm the one who wanted that damn rainbow to come on into my life.

I wonder why I couldn't have both today ... they were out there but, not ... for me.  The sunshine and rainbow ... went straight past me ... never stopping for a moment.  The sunshine hid behind the clouds ... the rainbow broke into a million pieces!  Damn that rainbow!

I don't 'know' who this is but ... that's just the way I have felt today.  The sun didn't shine for me as I thought ... damn rainbow shattered all to Hell.  I'm not responsible for that facial expression.  Damn rainbow ...

Note by this Author:

This is just the way life is sometimes.  Not every rainbow is meant for me ... the sunshine has to shine for someone else, too.  The only thing is ... it bothers me when a rainbow shatters into pieces.  I'll say it again ... damn that rainbow!

Now!  I said it!  I'll let it go now.  Photos/story owned, written by me ... Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.  Damn rainbow!

  1. I think many of us could use a "rainbow" now! Are there too many pieces to put back together? Oh where is that sunshine? Holidays are coming up and my family is going to need all the sun shine that we can get! Let's keep each other in our prayers! Love, Ms. Nancy
