I Miss The Rain - Poem by My Lady Eagle

Stretching further for the ones you’ve lost,
Wishing you could see their eyes again
Just like gazing for the same star every night
And feel them...
Feel them like how the wind touched you
Until you slowly slumber with a song
A song that umbrellas and raindrops
Could only offer now-in my lowest moments.

Mind and a heavy heart,
Pacing back and forth.
Thoughts narrow down to comprehension
That the rain is the biggest cover-up;
A mask.

So I took the rain
As an armor of choice;
Concealing every tear
That mine cheeks may encounter
Just so I can look above,
Yet again,
Without a frown or sign of weakness,

Remembering the ones who mattered most...
With a smile.

    I have to agree with Samanyan, the imagery in this poem sets it apart from many of your others. And the fact that you use it to develop your themes makes it uniquely yours. (Report)Reply

    I like the third stanza:

    So I took the rain
    As an armour of choice;
    Concealing every tear
    That mine cheeks can encounter
    Just so I can look above
    Yet again,
    Without a sign or frown of weakness.

    A beautiful poem.

    I love your poems, but this line: So I took the rain as an armor of choice; concealing ever tear...

    That is fantastic.
