Our Rain (love's irony)

Our Rain (love's irony)

A Poem by Richard
"

Tens 'n Eights

"



"Our Rain"


It’s raining here now, quite charming - somehow,

rain gently reminds me of You.

Sweet thoughts come to mind, how we seemed designed

to be “one” … tho, we were once two.


With soothing soft sound, wind blows drops around,

pattering ‘gainst my windowpane.

I’ve oft’ wondered why, resigned with a sigh,

’tis insane, almost inhumane,


that all we've been through , so in-love we two,

our bodies will never embrace.

It’s so hard to bear that you’re everywhere …

in everything, I see your face!


Your bright, spark’ling eyes, warm, smooth velvet thighs

imagined enfolding my frame.

Oh, come sate this thirst, ere parched hungers burst;

softly, our rain’s whisp’ring your name.


Heard, each daffodil ‘neath my windowsill

beckon in your lush, luring voice.

The harder it pours, like thundering roars,

our coursing blood leaves us no choice.


Deep, hot passions surge - into one we merge;

the earth 'neath our world stirs around.

Secure in our rain, two lovers ordain

to be evermore tightly bound.

Phenomenal. I love your rhyming scheme, the writing style. Your poetic choices flow perfectly. There's a melancholy to the poem, but yet it still feels somewhat hopeful. Like waiting for someone you love to come home and they're running late.

Genuinely great writing - I'll be reading more!

My dear Richard, how do I begin to explain what I am feeling after reading this beautiful romantic Masterpiece that you have laid out on the page? You know how much I love the rain so this piece resonates very tender and deep feelings within my very core ~ leaving me somewhat breathless and jealous of who may have inspired you to write of such feelings that have been shared with us through your words.

I continue to be amazed that you write as if your words are meant only for the reader thus, melts the heart of any woman who reads them. I have read your words over and over, each time finding each line/stanza more beautiful than before and the picture made my heart flutter as memories of long ago came to mind.

Richard, thanks for sharing your romantic heart with us my very special friend. ❤️

Blessings and big hugs,
~ mj
