January—
I am forced to grow up
Before my time
Confusion

February—
I get a little worse
Start to cry every night
Sadness

March—
I cling to old things
Try to turn back time
Failure

April—
I start to write
An outlet for built-up emotion
Expression

May—
I fall apart for real this time
Do things I now wish I hadn’t
Mistake

June—
I staple up the gap in my chest
And begin hiding behind fake smiles
Illusion

July—
I retreat further behind my wall
Forgetting how to cry, laugh, or scream
Isolation

August—
I am caged
Trapped by my uselessness
Insignificant

September—
I don’t know what to do
Nothing seems to matter anymore
Apathy

October—
I’ve snapped, it seems
Worse than before and oh so impossible to fix
Broken

November—
I stumble upon something unexpected
A reunion, a confession, a promise
Hope

December—
I start planning
Realizing that all is not lost
Though I am choking everyday
I am choking on rainbows
I swallow the beautiful things
As I find them
They are the product of all these months
Of these years that once seemed wasted
Light, the light of hope
Filters through every tear
And casts rainbows at my feet
I pick them up, collect them
And save them, one by one,
Save them for all the days I need saving
For all the days I need to feed this emptiness
Save them so that I can return them
Someday
I fill myself with seasons and seasons of rainbows
I can see it now
The color after the storm
I see
Possibilities, dripping with
Clean water.
#18 Rainbow for the 100 themes challenge. I didn't realize how much hidden meaning rainbows can have :D.

I like this one a lot too- it definitely has a sting to it, just as every rainbow needs some dark clouds behind it.

Thank you so much! I'm glad it came across the way I intended it to.

This is a fabulous poem. I would never have thought to use rainbows in such a way. This is very dark at some points, but the sudden theme of possible hope is inspiring. :) Great job.

Thank you! I just kind of got the idea for the rainbows randomly, but I decided it would be a good way to make my poem more unique.
