Watching rain fall in diagonal sequence.
Wondering what future it brings.
Lifeless dust layered on my arid skin.
As liquid pitter-patter washes me clean.
I wanna know. Have you ever seen the rain?
Wash away the misery in a smoldering mess.
Have you ever felt such dreadful pain?
Melancholy memories now suppressed.
The remaining sludge is quite restrictive.
As I try to move but am paralyzed.
Where once I was clean, I’m now withdrawn.
Cemented in silt as they auscultate my cries.
But the shower returns as it dives to the earth.
I stand in an alley and receive it well.
Shower me fully! I yell out to God.
The grit and the grime are an agonizing hell.
Now sterilized again so the dirt is gone.
My vision returns as I see right through her.
But set your clock, for it won’t be long.
I’ll soon be dragged through the mud and manure.
