 It’s the rain I can’t catch

The song I never sang before,

has notes, I’ve never heard.

it’s a melody that

 screams

and a beat that drums.

don’t touch.

It’s a love far away

an imagined image

where I want to wear

that light surf, a crown

with springs.

Like a silver spoon

found at the bottom of

the ocean.

(the milk carton

floating still)

It’s the rain I can’t

 catch

the hand I can hold.

the way I watch you sleep.

It’t the place where dreams

and nightmeres

befriend.
