Washes Nothing Away


Rain.
.
.

Why is it always rain
on those days
when you feel the world
is melting beneath your feet.
When the darkness
just got darker
and everything you believed,
you loved . . .
is so much goo
trying to bring you down.

Why is it always rain,
outside - inside - in your soul
and running down your cheeks
to spatter hopelessly
against your dreams,
drowning them in agonized
screams.

Why is it always rain,
rain
that washes nothing
away

Ahhh . . . Those last four lines, my friend, says it all to me. You put this poem together precisely the way it needed to be put together. I loved it.

Had I arrived first, I would have replied as Mr. Bolton did. The last four lines (and the subsequent 'raindrops') stand as a most profound closing.

Excellent concepts.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

Ah Jimmy, you did it again! Pulling on the heartstrings and tying them up precisely, as only you can my friend. ~L
