Tale From A Rainy Night - Poem by Matthew Holloway

Tale from a rainy night
In the rain I waited for you
Only you did not come
My phone sat silently in my pocket
No you did not even call
I bit my lip to fight the cold
Pressed my back against the wall
To gather as much shelter as I could
People and cars hurried by
I watched with some remorse
Each one that approached
I felt some anticipation inside
Wanting it to be you
I was kind of glad for the rain
Then I would look cold and wet
So no one could tell I began to cry
My heart sank deeper with every hour
Until eventually I knew
You would never come or call
So home I slowly marched alone
And whispered with your name
Goodbye, adieu
