oh angst ridden rain.
unknown

let me wait a while longer  
 1
for your hands to capture my worry and  
 2
bury it far beneath  
 3
the cavernous ridges of my muddied footprints.  
 4
    
 5
Only suppressed, not erased.  
 6
    
 7
How I have longed to contemplate those palms  
 8
and peer into the deepness I wish existed.  
 9
    
 10
As the sky opens, limpid pools surface  
 11
in the prelude to this long-praised dance  
 12
of moisture.  
 13
Drops cascade down my cheeks  
 14
and fall against waiting fingers.  
 15
Attempts to find meaning within each droplet  
 16
flood my conciousness.  
 17
A half-hearted desire to see a reflection of  
 18
this great expanse, this world among stars.  
 19
    
 20
My wet eyes were born of clouds, not of sorrow.  
 21
You will not recognize this,  
 22
and I prefer it so.  
 23
    
 24
Perhaps these hands are now besieged  
 25
by business cards and  
 26
letters containing hollow messages,  
 27
diluted from overuse.  
 28
No one listens.  
 29
Perhaps you only forgot.  
 30
Just let me see the light before I go.
