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 ..

I find that when it is raining, (as it does over here quite a lot. It is doing so at the moment) there is a certain atmosphere created that naturally evokes memories. This certainly does that.
I love the phrase rain punishing windows.

Rainy days have always been my favourite. A perfect time for quiet contemplation...for looking back...rain covers the tears. Good write, Lydia

Indeed, rain and tears seem to be a good combo. Thanks, Ted. Lydi**
I have always been impressed by the opening line and closing line being the same within a poem. It holds great meaning and depth to me, and speaks multitudes of the writer.

I love the rain and poetry that contains it. Another gem from you, Lydi!

The melancholy memories that fall
like dreams at dawn as you remember
the gentle gesture of hearing your name...
in the sund of rain... truly, musical... Pat

Thank you, Pat. LydI**
even as what could have been pelts against the window of our memory---that which we clearly see, that is what is really here to stay...
nice use of metaphor here, Lydi.

Indeed the cloak of night or inclement weather battering at our door sets our minds in freefall as we meander through the memory box. Well told tale of a might have been love still regretted and missed.

Memories and thoughts. Seem to always haunt us.
"and yet your voice speaking my name
the way no one ever had before
or ever will again"
I know and understand the above lines. Some memories become gold with time. Thank you Lydia for sharing the amazing poetry.
