A Rainy Reality

Rain trickles down
The chilly window
The cloudy sky
Is not yet dreary
It's not yet old
It's not yet gloomy
It's real
It's an icy reality
Like water on a sleepy face
And while it seems sharp
This icy, wet reality,
It's not
'Cause it's the only true thing
In my chaotic life
It's a constant reality
Not harsh, not rough
But elegant

This is a brilliant poem. It's elegant, graceful, and extremely well written. I believe that it captures the essance of a perfect rainstorm, with just a bit of lightnig and thuner mixed in that lasts for a couple of hours. My favorite kinds of weather. It also reminds me of a poem that I wrote a few years ago while it was raining, but it was lost and destroyed when I dropped my notebook into a deep puddle. But, like I said, it's an amazing poem.

It's fine. It stinks, but I've written other poems. :)
