poetry by j matthew waters

slight chance of rain

the sun she is setting
radiating a cloudless sky
casting a spectrum of colors
before my tired eyes

within arms reach
a jar of whiskey speaks to me
whispering my name
like my lover used to do

the sun she has fallen
taking with her promises
of meteor showers
and brighter tomorrows

the whiskey ages
in my unstoppable dreams
slowly separating from the jar
as the night rages on

april two thousand nineteen

    Really liked this. Sentiment is there without being sentimental. Well done.
