Sterile Rain

 pitter   patter   pitter   patter

a playful LIGHTNESS WEIGHS HEAVY
defiant droplets dance

down the outside of the window … pain 
a heart FILLED WITH EMPTINESS
FRAZZLED AND RAW 
bright sunshine is too brash

yet raindrops ... 

so reminiscent of a sound
~l~o~n~g~i~n~g~
to be heard on the
(inside)
