Rain

Watching the rain
attacking your windows
you see it run; racing dribbles
wasted energy
liquid rope twisting, turning
trying to find a way in

You don’t notice it
fulfil its purpose
of distracting you
from your sorrow
your memories
your future

you don’t remember
anymore
you are flanked
as the rain seeps
into your skin
your blood
your thoughts

until
you see the rainbow
and like a sponge
you release it all

to become
weightless
free

immaculate
