Part of my collection of personified weather-I write these when writers block hits :)
He is the warm breath on warmer blankets, tears of heartbreak streaming down his face. His flat mouth remains unchanged. He has a bloodlust that’s not for blood, but for sadness and the burning warmth that flickers in your stomach as you cry. He’s staring out a classroom window and wishing you were somewhere else and nowhere but there all at the same time. He’s the fluffy birds clutching the telephone lines as you walk through the snow under them. A personification of the name Plato, he puts his hands on your window and leans his forehead against the glass, fogging up your eyes as he softly sobs rivers onto your roof. Your room becomes a fishbowl, papers floating like fish flakes around you.
It’s so warm, you almost don’t realize you’re drowning in a mess of wires and pastel knitted sweaters. He sculpts you into Hercules and then breaks you down like a pantheon crumbling under heavy hail. He’s one holding your hand as you trace the streams across your car window, showing you their little branches and blossoms. He’s the rose petals that fall to the broken ground, illuminating your path with red corpses.
But he tells the truth. He refuses to lie, no matter how hard you break. He’ll always sweep up your pieces off the floor, gluing you back together as you laugh. He keeps you company, tapping outside your classroom window. While he’s sad, and the most pessimistic man you’ll ever meet, he’ll rearrange the clouds into your name if you ask.
He’ll tell you the truth.
