Rainy days caress

the windows in silver

drizzled on the glass...

I want to curl up

and sleep in her mind

swim the deep water

of her dreams...

If the rain falls

like sad faces all around

then open me up

spread out my arms

I’ll cover her

and be her umbrella man

shade her from words

in the atmosphere

that descend like knives...

For now life painted wine red

dripping down my canopy

chocolate raindrops

mix with truffled kisses

confessions of forever...

Please let me swim

the deep water

of her dreams…

Love the entire feel of this one... from the graphic to the font to the words that drip softly from lips........ The narrator wants to consume her thoughts, be one with them.... although her life has been a sad one, yes?

'For now life painted wine red/dripping down my canopy....

Conclusion holds great power...

I quite like the metaphors you have used. They are creative, and brim with lush imagery. There is an awful lot of imagination that has gone into writing this, and it shows in every sentence.
You have laid the message softly, and with great skill!
Awesome poem, bro.

That is my favorite line partly because it is so clever. I would never think about something like that. And it makes me feel like I should expand my creativity as a writer.
