Rains

It’s raining outside
I can see on my window panes
Rain droplets slide
Inside seemingly dry eyes something triggers rains

Memories are cruel
They don’t spare
O agonizing thoughts! Do not fuel the flame
And waste the gems rare

The storm has been building for ages I know
The despair left no trace of hope’s glow
I wore a smiling face just for show
O unwelcome guest! I bid you to go

Why should I remember the haunting moments?
Why should I recollect the heart wrenching times?
Where are the images that heart enchants?
Where is the melody with rhythm and rhymes?

Go, go, go O clouds of despair
With your deafening noise of lightning and thunder
Lend me your ears and let me declare
I fight aggression, I do not surrender

I can see on my window panes rain droplets glide
Alone in this dreary night and no one by my side
The thundering clouds with menacing deafening pride
O my restless soul the worldly rules abide
               Karachi, Dec. 27, 2012

This to me is a beautiful poem. I just love this type of poems. Rain does triger something inside of us. My first poem that got published in a book was called Rain. That was when i started to write more. Mine was not as good as yours. I might post it later here. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

Hello Mohammad Yamin, wishing you a great 2013... about your poem: Sometimes I like the rain cause it makes me feel the core of my soul. not all my memories are good.. some burn like the flame in your "The Flame" senryu... yes, the deeper the rain the less magical the flame feels... one should never give to the scenery... enjoyed this poem alot... always~pd
