Thunder and green mint

Thunder and green mint The forest so lust I can taste the tea from here. The rain hits the roof as I hear the cats purr, I lay on my bed starring out my window wishing you were here by my side watching it with me. The rain it soothes my mind relaxes my soul and chills my veins I can smell your cologne from the room next door, you told me "if you sit in the rain long enough to hear it speak then you're lucky enough to always remember me" I will always remember you and from now on every time it rains I promise you to sit there as long as I hear it speak so I will always remember your voice, it was mellow like the rain it made me melt and it chilled my veins. Now I sit here in the rain trying hard to let my thoughts leave I'm wet inside the forest of green mint I hear it coming the wind blows and I hear you, "don't tell no body" this is our secret we had the power to hear it speak and once you left the rain washed you away so now everyday from January to march I will never forget your voice unless it never rains.

I like the metaphor of the rain becoming someone's voice that only you can hear. Very bittersweet emotion and sense of loss. Well done. Congrats on your win :)
