You Live In The Rain


Selena Molinari '24


The rain crushes
My affinity for you
As it falls
It fails to remain a drop
And spreads on the concrete
Like puddled despair
The rain crushes
Every image
Every fragment
Remaining of you
From the depths and alleys
Of my tear soaked mind
as I watch the blue substance falls

I watch as the rain
my feelings for you
I realize

The tears shut the same eyes
that watched you leave
A careful whisper from the water
that floods my lashes
A whisper that screams

“ Ill never really leave”

The rain crushes my affinity for you
Because in some ways
It is you
All I see when my eyes pass a puddle
Are yours.
