After The Rain

After The Rain

A Poem by BackupAccount: Summer D.
"

We all have those moments where our feelings don't make much sense. We're all just waiting for the rain. That'll wash it away and make it okay. After The Rain.

"

Store away lies in June, in my drawer beneath my heart, where you left that stormy night.

The truth before me spawns into sepia, a bursting color that soars through my mind and uplifts my spirits.
The meaning of drawing close and its warmth escaped me, forgive me, I had forgotten the feel of the exhilaration of your presence. 

Perhaps I am wrong in saying, “ You don’t mind being alone.” A good-bye passes your lips.

I thought I was tired of hearing that kind of comfort

Merciless memories echo on endlessly, they’ll never release me. 
When I close my eyes they just grow stronger, you laugh in the distance

Will the rain ever stop? It's unrelenting pounding and chilling cold has thrived inside me- It's been a long time.

Why does the rain choose me? When I have no place to run

I finally found a new beginning but time haunts my past- reminding me of my very essence.
I’m not headed for the “next,” all I chased was the “past”

You, my savior who rescued me with your kindness and comfort, and I, this rueful coward
"It’s time for complications to spill out as I fumble blindly for your tired cheek."

Eyes that struggle against the truth of he past, fingers that wash it away
A placid stride heals the scars, the distance is farther than it looks

Will the rain ever stop? It's unrelenting pounding and chilling cold has thrived inside me- It's been a long time
Why does the rain choose me? Should I let it wash over me?

The rain never ceases and it keeps raining today
Amongst the rush of the people and the blurring city lights I draw close, underneath my open umbrella, towards the warmth.

I'm not entirely sure if this would ACTUALLY go under a poem. Oh well~

**Warning**: Grammar errors are to be expected. I fail at it but if it is any consolation- I fail "epically."

Inspired by a song. Similarities might be evident.

Aideu,
