it was raining last night
the drops-
one
by
one
by
one

weaving a pattern on my windshield

my wipers never working
"get new blades" you knocked on my window
as I pulled out of the lot
and I laughed at you, smiling

but that was a week ago
and the two of us much closer then
isn't it amazing what a little time
and a few words can do to divide two?

If I had known it would come to this-
me:looking for a sign of you
stuck in the night
and aimless in the rainstorms

perhaps I would have listened

perhaps the broken blades
like the falling
scattering
rain

wouldn't be reminding me of you
with every drop they try to wipe away




------------------
And I thought: this is how poetry is born. It comes from invisible heights, it is secret and dark in its origins, solitary and fragrant, and like the river it will assimilate whatever falls in its current; it will seek a route between the mountains, and its crystalline song will ripple through the meadows."- Pablo Neruda

this one was supposed to post differently..
I had spaces between the line :: one by one by one: to give it a downward cascading sense..
alas...this format didn't accept the spacing...
I also wanted the end to be a visual scattering of words as well..

oh well....

use your imagination

I love this one.. I can almost imagine the rain falling... would you send me a copy with the correct spacing?
