You were the sunlight – Short Story Slam

Forty days and forty nights, they said,

the relentless dull sky

hung heavy over me.

 

Days stretched into months, years

and my umbrellas

were all threadbare.

 

Useless against the deluge.

 

Forty days, then forty nights, then a while longer.

 

Then you,

You were the sunlight

which stopped the rain.
