....inspired by another

Posted to Action Poetry

it's been four days
since I've seen the sun
darkness and mist
cloud my mind
seep into my clothes
head pulled down close
to my chest
forgive me for dodging
the drops, I just can't seem to
look up
and r-e-l-a-x
let the drops fall down my face
smear mascara and wipe away my mask
to reveal something real
that I can never love for long
breathing deeply in the rain
feels like breathing under water
