Raindrops on plant leaves.

Poetry Shower

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.

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.
