today, i stayed indoors and missed a rainbow. i was blissfully unaware of the beauty that passed while i remained within these white walls. then, i found a reason to end my day with tears and when they were forced out to make way for more sociable behaviour, i was told that i missed a rainbow.
initially, it felt like a cruel joke, a taunt from someone who deliberately wants to hurt me. but when i saw a picture of the rainbow just moments ago, it was like a gift that had remained hidden from me till now. see what you have missed, lishun. you were looking the wrong way, but it was there all the same.
i find it strangely comforting that a rainbow waited for me. even stranger that it found me in a time like this.
