Midnight Rain - Poem by Pete Zaesar Galula

Dark clouds gathering around
Skies turning into a crimson dome
as the moon's gravity,
waking up the waves
slowly running to shore
Heart's leaping in the pale moonlight
that now surrenders, fading into the night
As my drained temple lay
Lifeless but undying, in this cold earth
Restlessly waiting and wishing not its delay
Longing for the falling, one night of May,
the falling of the midnight rain
that comes once, once like Halley's
shooting here and there without knowing
or perhaps the eclipse that never comes

And then it starts to fall
Raindrops piercing my soul
and riveting staright into the core
of this jealous heart
The longings of the heart
All the emptiness inside
now drowned, with all the teardrops
like the midnight rain
Falling forever, ignoring the sun
that's hiding somewhere, or perhaps
sleeping under its sheets
Extinguised by these tears
like the midnight rain
Drowning every pain
