"A Breath of Fresh Rain"
E.M. Hunton

Inhale:exhale
Trying to breath, to move, to escape
wanting to be consumed
And each breath
slips through my lips
leaving me thirsty
for real air

swirling downward so that
I can come up again
Rays of sunlight
glistening through
raindrops
And lightning
lighting up the sky
followed by
claps of thunder

Raindrops falling on me
soaking me, drenching me
But I can't feel them
as I watch them slide down my arms
and rest on my eyelashes
I can't feel them
But feelings don't matter
Because its raining
