In love with the rain


In love with the rain

The quiet rain that murmurs outside,
that calm rain I know is burning you inside,
because if the wind blows and
the muddy floods stop all of a sudden,
you know I will leave you to sleep.

My hair, sparkling wet and the scent of it,
I know you drain off with your eyes eager,
the dewdrop that trembles on my neck,
it’s all that you have in your dreams.

And if I ever reveal my love for rain
if I ever confess it’s because of you,
please don’t hate me,

I know you created the drops that fall right now,
I know you invented the rain for me.

    I love the rain! And I love it more when I’m under the rain, but beside the one that I love. ♥ Lovely, isn’t it? But I heard there’s a typhoon coming at the Philippines, please help us in praying that it won’t be that strong… Thanks and all my prayers for you, Blaga. :) You’re my favorite poet after Shakespeare. :D

    What a romantic piece! Rain can be so sensual and intimate, I absolutely adore it too! There’s nothing better than kissing in the rain. Again, I love the imagery you used in this piece, it really creates a perfect image, and reflects the mood you’re trying to go for so well. You have a beautiful way with words!

    I’ve felt the same regarding the sad/somber feelings rain produces within me…I like how you’ve found a sense of adoration for it. A great poem.

    yes, the rain is indeed magical

  13. chimnese Says:

    I love the rain, I’ve always find myself writing scenes in my stories with the characters argue in the rain then later just get to that point where they look deep into each other eyes and kiss. The most best times I’ve had in the rain is when it falls right on my face.
    This was truly a romantic piece.
