Rookie - 0 Points (20th September 1990 / Jacksonville, Florida)

Rainstorms


Warm water pouring
Like veins, over pale skin
Flowing against muscle

Eyes set still
Dropplets hang on lashes, and hair
Batted breath lingers

Parched lips thirst
Words and tounge dried out
Heartbeat pounds like rain

Skin soaked to bone
Body aches, as cold wind blows
Shivers and chills ripple

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
