POEM:Partly Cloud

Nozipho Madlala

Partly cloudy,

With a chance that things might be different tonight

you walk in,

another long day at the office.

and the only therapy is me

on the couch,

waiting for your body to spit out

the stress

and insecurity

till I’m a muddy puddle.

and your footprint on my chest

becomes a permanent

symbol of your love.

But I don’t mind the wind

and the rain,

just as long as it’s you

hovering over me-

a dark cloud

on an otherwise sunny sky-

with a chance that things

might be different tonight.

And I’ll take the electrifying

lightening from your hands

to my face,

over your absence any day.

my eyes, partly cloudy

with light showers expected-

I’d rather drown in my own tears

than fly away during a storm.

just as long as it’s you,

standing there,

Partly cloudy,

With a chance that things

might be different tonight.
