It Needs To Rain Again


It needs to rain again.
Know why I like the rain?
When it rains, and I am standing in it,
For that moment, the rest of the world isn't there.
Just me doing what I love; playing in the rain
For that moment, all my fears, all the drama, they are gone.
It needs to rain again.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have a lot on my mind at any given time, and the only time my mind is quiet is when it's raining. I feel for the time I am in the rain, everything is getting washed away and forgotten about. That for that time, Nothing is bothering me. I am safe.

    I love the rain, too, Brittany. It allows me a chance to feel free, almost washes away the pain, sorrow. Love the poem. I am ever so sorry the poem brings to mind your mom. I am 100% convinced my daughter would say and feel the same. In fact, its for her...I wrote it from her perspective while I tried to understand why she feels as she does and why its difficult to believe otherwise; But Brittany, I can guarantee you, your mom may have made a million mistakes, but she loves you. I love my daughter. And I've spent close to a year now working on becoming the kind of mother she deserves in the hopes that one day she will reach back when I reach to her. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
