the sky showers down
droplets of its
peculiar vernacular
a rhythmic dribble
lost in the nuance
of her absent-minded stare

when the only urge
is to wrap myself
tightly around her
take the worries away
in the warm glow
that pulses in her presence

it’s cold again today
i sit watching the rain
shivering beneath
a soft red blanket
that carries its own
smallpox laden memories

somewhere else
the sun is shining
while i sit in the dark
wrapped in empty wishes
the chilly solitude
of my own absolute zero

but i ride
the invisible waves
into her arms
