**raindrops** Poem by londiwe buthelezi

**raindrops**

Rating: 3.5


raindrops fall on my window pane,
can't believe i'm like this again.
still thinking about how a love just like ours
could just fade away...

was it me that did something wrong?
or had it been like this all along?
still asking the questions i know
can't be answered so easily...
still struck by the fact that from now on
there'll just be a you...and me

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

I love it! It's beautiful. It took me a couple of reads, but now I get it. 'was it me that did something wrong? or had it been like this all along? still asking the questions i know can't be answered so easily...' I love these lines. Your words here are so powerful. I think people ask a question until they get an answer, and if you don't know the answer the question keeps taunting you. I know what that feels like. Anyway, love your poem!

For a young poet, you have a fine talent for expression which will only improve as you become older and more experienced, Londiwe. I liked how you equated those raindrops with sadness, even though it is a common idea used in romantic poetry. Your poem was very expressive and overall, quite well written. Carl.

You have captured the pain of separation most concisely in this poem. Keep on writing, Londiwe.
