Rain

heavy raindrops pound against my skin

as lightning illuminates the night so beautifully

the wind is calm and still

as the roaring thunder plays like a symphony

the street flows like a river

gently into that long night

the sidewalk glistens like diamonds

as water splashes in the moonlight

my sun-kissed skin erupts in goosebumps

euphoric in the storms cool embrace

it’s gentle, wet fingers running through my hair

it’s loving hands caressing my face

the clean, crisp air taste of memories long forgotten

the grey clouds that blanket the sky, are a balm to ease this pain

and my soul grows peaceful and quiet

walking slowly into the rain
