The raindrops wash away my tears


Or masks them


Maybe that’s the solace I find in storms


The jokes and anger can hide what was


Time eases the pain and the sorrow


But still you remain


An unfulfilled promise


An unrealized union


Such desperate love


The tears, the kisses, and remorseful laughter


The tension of our illicit affair


So many labels


Yet one remains




Without care


Without cost


A love I risked


And knowingly become a fool


For a love so irresistible and embracing


Was a fool’s errand


And leaves only those drops that remain


Long after the rain has ended
