the rain

the rain

A Poem by Lydia





even as the rain punishes the window pane

with fierce retribution

yearnings peek out over the horizon

memories of midnight meetings

of a love never meant to be

creep into my consciousness

no, it would never work

and truly it didn=t

and yet your voice speaking my name

the way no one ever had before

or ever will again

is all i hear tonight

even as the rain punishes the window pane

i looked at the picture and thought...wow...perfect to set up a warm and thoughtful mood ..then read your poem and looked again and thought...wow! how empty the scene is
what a difference a poem makes eh!? opening two lines are brilliant says i ..so powerful and instant .. and you know Lydia .. love and all its different whirlwinds since hearts were born ... has been spoken, written and acted ... and in your poem it is all brand new ...so relatable .. great language and flows as naturally as music ..

The endearing quality of this lies in the fact, that the incidences that you talk of are relatable for everyone. That's the secret to a good romantic poem. The scenes should be specific, but the details should be loose enough so that everyone can fit into the description! I find writing romantic poems extremely difficult, and that makes me appreciate the silent genius behind this poem furthermore.

Welcome Lydi**
This poem brought back a very fond memory of a stormy evening when in the throws of passion I whispered the name of the woman I loved...... Problem was ...it wasn't her I was with.
Lesson learned.... Always use a pet name... Honey.... Baby... Sweetie....
It will prevent a broken heart. And possibly a finger or window or plates....

Love your poetry.

Smiling here...you naughty boy! Thanks for reading and the review, Trace. Lydi**
Rain has a hypnotic quality to it. It often drums the window pane to remind one of times and people gone by...Such a beautiful effect created here!

Sad memory indeed. What if. Could it work. Would it work. We'll never know. Life in its truest form.
Hope you didn't suffer to much damage in the storm.
