Poetry Shower It has been raining all day today While grey clouds paint the sky, In the South, flash floods In our heart, it's blue and morose It has been raining all day today But all I really wanna do Is to shower you with poetry So that you might stay warm Inside words made of sunlight It has been raining in my heart lately And water erased all of my words My creativity became destructive My body, a vessel of pain It has been raining in my heart lately But all I really wanna do Is to touch this watery image And to carry us towards the sunlight Towards warmth, and towards what's gold It has been raining today Water droplets dot the plants While the birds continue to sing Safe within the leaves of trees It has been raining today And all I wanna do Is to write of what I see and feel So as to shower you with poetry While Sunday eclipses away the rain. -Eiravel-
My soul only craves poetry lately. Writing fiction takes a lot of my time — lots of rewriting, rereading, and reediting… lots of struggle, only to find that I don’t bring anything new to the table; that what I write has already been written by others; that my ideas are not at all ingenious. So I guess that it is time for me to quit writing stories, and to focus more on writing poems.
