Time Within the Rain

Written by: Jill Martin

Dismal the rain
     defiant rain
drags me away from beyond
     then
until now.
Unquiet skies grey by
     the utter absence
of time.
And time, my love,
seems evermore to
     never end.
Disturb false whispering winks
     with the sweetness of your caress.
Fall deeply in the silence
     of my pretty mess.
Hold my small box of tomorrows
     in a strand of thought incomplete.
And I will calculate the loss of you
     as the cold settles round my feet.
