so let the rain fall down

it rains so much that people worry that the river will overflow its banks. grandmother fusses that in all her life she's never seen rain like this. two trains crash down in the capital because of a land slip. houses are turned into islands, survivor - only in the middle of civilization.

jimmy smiles at me from the tv. "another mean watering machine is coming your way," he says.

i don't smile back.

i sit at my desk, rain splashing on the windows, twilight falling over me.

the rain falls inside my bedroom too, inside me. perhaps it's a good thing.

let the rain fall down/and wake my dreams/i'm coming clean

  1. The title of this post reminded me of a hillary duff song i used to love back in the day.lol

    Let the rain fall down
    And wake my dreams
    Let it wash away
    My sanity
    'Cause I wanna feel the thunder
    I wanna scream
    Let the rain fall down
    I'm coming clean, I'm coming clean

  2. Ahh... I used to love Hilary Duff. :) I guess once I started writing about the rain I started to put some of the lyrics in.

  5. There's something so calming and comforting about the rain, and the sound it makes when it's tapping against the eaves of the house. I love standing in the rain - like it's washing away your sins. :D Sometimes you just need to stand in a downpour and get drenched to remind you that you're still there.

  6. This is beautiful. My brain isn't 'in gear' enough to say anything more at the moment.
