The Rain

I'm smiling at you, in the middle of the rain;
Soaking wet.
All thoughts of sadness, and of pain,
I forget.
The rain is pelting down, I don't care,
I want to take a step closer, I don't dare.
Because it's something I'll regret.

You make a funny face and smile just incase,
As I start to laugh.
My smile starts to fade, as quickly as it was made,
Because I know this won't last.
You'll realize one day, That I'm here to stay,
Even if you go.
So I'll smile just because, it's you that I love,
And you'll never know.

No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
I think of you all the time.
The rain is coming down harder, and I smile at you,
Cause I don't even mind.
But as the rain pelts down, I can't see,
And I know I have to go.
I hold back my tears, as you hug me,
Because you'll never even know.

I am a fervent admirer of this poem, partly because I love being in the rain (even if the rain in this piece is simply a metaphor in the poem (is it?)). No matter, for I thoroughly enjoyed reading your complex emotions and thoughts.

I hope that you will read my article 'The four pillars of Love.' Please don't be offended by this suggestion; I just wish to spread the message. Since the poems that I've read of yours are about love; I'm interested in your response.

This poem is based on a real experience, and it was raining when this happened. The rain could easily be viewed as a metephor too, because of my feelings and how hard it was becoming to stay with him, the harder the rain pelted down.

It all depends on your perspective.

I'll try to read your article, and if you read any of my other poems you'll realize almost all of them are about love.
