Rain

by Quixilated

I sit in the rain 
and listen to melancholy songs 

the clouds are dragon heads
one with a great swirling eye 
one blowing smoke 

a lone firefly hurries by
he must have missed the weather report

warm summer rain falls on my skin 
I want it to feel like tears 
instead it is liquid breath 
was I gasping before?

I feel the pulse of the music against my palm 
and wonder if words can go in the same way they come out, 
through my fingers 

I wait for an epiphany, a poem, 
some release

but I only get a mosquito bite 
and so call it a night.
