Month of Written Devotion – Sadness

Sadness is like clutter.
At the start, you have only a little
and you think it doesn’t matter
but it builds over time,
little by little it takes over your life
until you find yourself looking around
wondering whether it was ever another way.

Sadness is not like clutter,
it is like treacle;
sticking to your skin and
clinging to your clothes and
near impossible to remove.

Sadness is not like treacle,
it is like a shadow
which flees the light.

You are like the sun,
chasing my shadows away.
