Silver Lining…

I was always the dark cloud.
That’s all I remember being.
The darkness in the sky,
the thunder before the storm,
and eventually the rain on my own parade.
Yes, I rained on my parade.
Killed my spirit before anyone else got the chance.
I was the dark cloud.

I was the nightmare that kept me up at night.
I was the demon that tormented me.
The ghost that haunted me night and day.
I rained havoc on my spirit,
and robbed me of my peace.
The cruel judge,
jury and executioner of my own fate.
I had damned myself to a meaningless existence.
I was the dark cloud.

I was the dark cloud,
perhaps with a silver lining.
Like every cloud, I had a silver lining.
I was the silver lining.
I was the light at the end of the tunnel,
the sun that thawed the cold.
The joy that danced on my parade.
Yes, I danced joy into my parade.
Breathed life into my spirit,
and waited on no one.
I was the silver lining.

I was the dark cloud,
I was the silver lining,
I could have been either,
but I couldn’t be both.
