When It Rains

Now listen
To the rain
That hits against the
Window and drips
Down somewhere
Nowhere
Here I am again

Waiting

Here I am again
Torn between
The present
The future

What we have
And what our dreams
Will be made of

The fortress we built
With our bare hands
Pieces by pieces
In hours
Days
Months
Listen to my heart
Beating my wish
Hoping the fences
Stand for years

Now listen to the rain
Listen to the sound of it
Hitting on
Our guard towers
Eroding the bricks

If you still haven't
Figured out the
One wish you promised
To grant me
If you still haven't
Forgotten

Just listen to the rain
And look at how it
Slowly engulfs
Our dreams

I wish after our numerous
Reconstructions
Of our fortress,
We would be able to
Overcome exhaustion

Now listen to the rain
Hold on to
The sound of it
Hitting against the window
And remember
How desperately I wish
You could grant me my wish
