Rain

Take in everything
Forget
Take in everything
Forget

Sweat

Salt taste's good
In a very dry mouth

But

It's sickening

It teases with a start of reassurance

But then
It trails down
With less tiles to run on
It's starts tip-toeing moisture out
In the middle of your tongue
It dehydrates the rest of the setting
It causes a calibration to be joined
For a message to be made

That

I
Am
Thirsty

But

The problem with one cloud
Another could form
                                                              And another
And another
                        And Another

And if they join together
A storm could come

I am thirsty

Thirsty?

Thirsty for what?

Water
Clear    Odorless   Tasteless    Neutral     Liquid
Sufficient isn't it?
That's all you need?
That all you want?

And if they join together
A storm could come

Thirsty

I've been oh so thirsty

And that's when invisible hands start to open doors
Unlocking every category

What's Behind door number one?
Childhood memories; only child; key home kid; first friend

And door number two?
Liking boys; liking girls?; not liking girls. Crushes; first boyfriend

And door number three?
Losing work; bills to pay; break ups; single
                                                                                                                 Lonely
Lonely
            
                             Lonely
     
                                                                     Lonely

A storm could form
And if it does

It rains...
