Let it Rain.

Just fall.

Condense, collapse

Pour down on me

Let it rain

Let it fall from the skies

Sheets, Buckets, Torrents

Of rain that blind my sight

That drowns out my hearing

That suffocates my breathing

Grey skies that darken, that roll, that rumble

Wind that howls and whips my hair into a frenzy

Fist-sized pellets of rain that sting my skin and eyes

Let it fall

Let it rain

Let it come down on me

Until I’m struggling, gasping, begging

For air.

There is a storm inside of me.




For a blue sky.

  1. I am reading this over and over, sitting in a mobile office, and the rain is coming down in sheets, here in West Tennessee. We are under a Tornado Watch for another few hours. Your poem defines my mood, enhances my setting, and takes me through an emotional maze. Oh, and there are the weather connotations, as well.

    Would you mind, terribly, if I read this aloud to some friends of mine, please? I promise to give you full author credit at the outset and again at the closure, even so far as to share your Word Press Blog Page URL… I promise, I will do my very best to read it as you intended, if granted the opportunity… Thanks in advance for your consideration in this matter.

    Oh, and… that part about suffocating really froze me. I cannot swim.
