Rain

Tags: peace

I tilt my face toward the sky

And welcome the rain

Let it pour over the rage

Sticking to my skin

It pounds with my pulse,

Wars outside and in

Bathes me in the ferocity of 

Storms

 

Blinding

Deafening

Obliterating

 

The drops slow to nothing

Winds fall from the sky

Both folding back

To allow her forward

 

And I know her

 

Beauty glows inside my skin

Warms my body,

My eroded heart,

Bloats me with purity

Leaves me purged of despair,

A naked form glistening in

The rivulets of rain

 

Nature’s baptismal,

Bringing me from the brink

And back into her arms again
