Lost in the Rain

Lost in the Rain

A Poem by Oliver Free

A poem I wrote on a particularly rainy morning.

Yet again the rain falls
as I wander down these halls.
This silence, all-consuming,
Keeps the flowers from blooming.

It's hard to say when it began,
And harder to say when it will end.
The water's surface, knee deep,
Haunts my mind as I try to sleep.

The allure of the crystal clear droplets
Makes me ever more hesitant to stop this.
But I know, in my heart,
That some day we will part.

Part of me fills with a nervous fear
As I hold your hand, pleading for you to stay here.
But you told me it would be alright.
So I watched you leave, waiting with hope for night.

You never did come home.

It felt like sitting in a bench in the rain, watching someone slipping away from us into the invisible paths of life... It's amazing what nature and human emotions can do together... Great work mate...
