Okay, this was originally going to be a story but I couldn't get it down right so I decided to go for poetry. I think it came out as close to perfect as it's going to get. (There's an explanation at the end if there are some people out there who didn't get what it was about)
A moonless night
Closing my eyes, I pretend it's your heartbeat
Your light guides me, if only for a moment
Rain breaks through dark clouds
Rushing to meet the Earth
Rushing to meet me
My eyes still closed, I feel your fingertips
Caressing my face, running through my hair
An embrace brings warmth against the night
I finally open my eyes, bringing back reality
Your heartbeat disappears into the distance
I'm left in the dark, grasping for your light
Your warmth is taken away from me
All I'm left with is rain
And my memory of you
I know, it's painfully short but this is my first entry so please go easy on me. And please don't judge on how long it was but on the quality.
I promised an explanation:
In the poem, the girl is missing her boyfriend, husband, whatever. (I hope it was at least that clear) She's outside when a storm is about to begin. She misses him and pretends he's the storm. The part where she says that she feels him caressing her is the rain sliding down her face. The other part where there might be confusion is the one where she talks about an embrace. When it rains, the water makes her clothes stick to her skin, kind of like when someone squeezes tight. She pretends that's his embrace. And her love is so strong, that she can actually feel his warmth.
And I guess that's it.
Please review (nicely)!
