Love Like Rain

(Always open for constructive criticism)

It’s like the rain.
The kind that starts out
So slow
That you don’t quite know when
Or where
It all began.
Not until you feel it.
Pelting your skin
It’s forcing its way in.
Coming down so hard
You can’t see past.
Then you feel it in your bones.
The chill that has pierced your soul.
At this point
There’s nowhere to go.
And no one to slow down,
Stop to look,
See how you drown.
And you’re passed help.
Passed seeing who is
Pulling you out.
By the time
You’re warm and dry
The rain has left welts,
You run from the sun,
And you’ve been cast
In pitch black
For so long
You’re blind to hope.

And then the past is gone.
You can nearly feel 
The future at your fingertips. 

And you just have to 
Hope you can hope 
Enough to grasp it.
