The Rain Fell

The rain fell Splattering upon my open face Mixing with the tears Dripping, trickling down my neck As if the stars above were weeping too As if someone above was crying along with me Helping my tears to fall. The rain fell Washing away the world Taking with it the pains And the horrors and wounds As if we were being given a second chance As if we were to be set back to the beginning To start over. The rain fell Wails splitting the skies Clouds rushing across the blackness Stars blurred, covered As if everything were running away As if something was chasing it all away A memory, maybe. And I still stood there In the middle of it all Raindrops and tears running together free Watching, crying, letting go A new start, something told me A chance to heal the hurts and bruises To clear salted tears And wipe everything away And maybe, after it’s all over I’ll be back at the beginning Laughing this time, smiling Thanking the stars above, Thanking the someone above For this new chance This new start But for now, Just for now, The rain fell.

A good cleansing cry washes away so much and prepares us to go on. Nicely stated theme. Thanks for the comments on my work. Keep writing. Sara
