Cool Rain

Praying for cool rain I
splash my face repeatedly
staring through a hazy liquid veil
watching the dark trails spider
their way down my
reddened cheeks stopping
short at my lips.
mouth agape with a raspy sigh
quick to follow
water again...
...and again.
Everytime I close my eyes
a part of you is there.
Hands gripping my head with
thumbs pressed upon my lids
stealing my false vision
opening the curtains wide
within - letting in, or out...
who knows what but
(((I feel)))
How you got in is the question
I choose not to ask but to
accept and relish in
my own quiet chambers.

You know, that is wicked cool!!!

Did I revert to 8th grade when I said that? But, regardless, you write so beautifully.

You're a doll...
If you keep writing, I will!!!
(8th grade theme....ha ha!!)
You've been an inspiration...I've even purchased a new journal to dust off my thinking cap and pen!
