Walking in the rain

I lift a tired face

To wash away

This acutely

Stinging pain

Let fat drops fall

Slowly crawl

Down cold cheeks

Held in check

For what seems

Like weeks

I raise my arms

To bleary sky

Laugh

for no reason

For once

Not caring why

And let the salt

Entwine

Combine

With the fresh

Forget worries

Or silly matters

of fault

And as I laugh

And as I cry

I take a moment

To release a sigh

And just be

Silly, complicated

Undeniable

Me.
