I Listen to the Rain

a poem by RestLeSsD

If wishes were granted
With one single smile
I’d wish to hold you close
For just a little while.

If kisses were given
Just for love’s sake.
My heart would be yours
It would no longer ache.

If wrapped in your arms
Was where I belonged
Then that’s where I’d be,
Having never been wronged.

But that’s just daydreaming
Nothing’s as it is seeming.
Our love has left fleeting
My heart has stopped beating.

My days no longer matter
The nights are endless pain.
I lay in darkened shadows
And I listen to the rain.

I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

    Beautiful and yet so sad. The image is also one to contemplate on. I had never heard the song before, but you chose well to show the emotions passing through.
