Part 3 – The Day We Came Together





(Read Part Two – The Day We Came Together here)

 

And yes,
the rains have come down again,
washing away the quiet, winter strength;
clasping the tendons
and up the spine
in a shuddering electric wave–
restless tremors
under the wraps
of long confined boundaries,
waiting,
perhaps,
for a miracle escape,
from the strangled soul.

 





The symphony of the drops
takes me back a long way–
through the black nights
of an anxious touch–
the warmth of our embrace;
the silence in our breaths;
the lust in our eyes;
the goosebumps on our flesh;
moments
of togetherness,
of shared despair,
flashing between the gaps
of unspoken words.

 

When I fell in love with you,
the sky turned a different blue,
the leaves
a different green.

 

Today,
the rain reminds me
of you;
of the dark clouds,
and the wetness of the ground
where our footsteps
would sink in
like memoirs of our love
as though they were deep enough to last
forever.
