Care to indulge me in a little melodrama?
Anyway, this is equal parts real life and exaggeration. I very recently went through a break-up (not a bad one; historically, my break-ups are very amicable), and felt like I should be more upset about it than I was letting myself be. I thought writing some poetry would be a nice catharsis for it, and it really has been.
What is not exaggerated in the poem is that I was sick to death of Winter, but recently had the ill fortune to have to deal with water that was improperly draining from the roof into our walls. Yuck. Oddly, today as I was playing videogames and attempting not to think too much about the break-up, this struck me as a perfect topic/image for a poem, and I had to come write it. I think it's a bit of a rough poem, still, but I think with a few tweaks it could be really special.
