Rainfall

Oh, sweet sorrow, you're raining down on me
Licking my mouth, carrying salt to the sea
Wash away everything, expose all my colors
I walk with you, rain, away from the others

Streaming through rock, cage-less and young
Fall into myself, from my toes I have sprung
Soften the concrete with my face pressed to the floor
The holes shouting, porous, they beg me for more

Start a new season and wash away blandness
Prismacolored, pure, but I didn't plan this
Rain, condemned to a life of continual fall
The streak on my cheek is your silent call
