I am the rain
beating down
until the overflow.
Spilling out
drowning anything
and everything
that is calm.
With the rain
darkness lingers
to be scattered.
Though the rain
is eager give up
the darkness is
I am the rain
and only the sun
can break up
these showers.

I stare at the water
eyes as wide as the oceans themselves --

Each set of waves entices me
like a lover reaching out her hand
beckoning from underneath
the crisp white duvet cover
to join her.

Come to me and let go.
Come to me and forget.

She is warm
and I feel safe in her presence
though I should feel
a numbing chill
deep in my chest.

Come to me and let go
Come to me and forget.

I reach for her hand
but instead am swept into a

I'm repeating
in my head

My heart beats
      with fear

Each thud
Each dud

Quietly it goes
       pumping this
       pain throughout
       my bones.

I am scared.

In a moment far from reverie
I wondered
will the thought of you save me

Your perfume lingers for days
trapped in my duvet of little fictions
because it is the only truth
you ever give to me.
