The room is silent but her heart is pounding.
The water roars and it is astounding.
Rain falls down as she closes her eyes
Dreaming of secrets her heart keeps inside.
She has visions of love, love that can end all her pain
As the one she longs for kisses her lips in the rain.
He holds her tightly in his arms
Whispers words filled with charm
Saying all is forgiven, no need for these scars.
His words wake her smile, and he caresses her face
His fingers removing her sadness, every trace.
He kisses her again, and her heart is healed.
But she knows this is not real.
She opens her eyes, and she is alone
But the storm rolls on and her wishes are known.
She listens to the torrents pound upon the roof.
Thunder chasing lightning like it has something to prove.
He is not with her, the painful realization
Prompts her to take another mental vacation.
Because just after he had left from their fight
She knew she could not sleep until it was alright.
She hears the sound
Of the rain coming down
Stands and looks into the dark
And cannot secure her pain in her heart.
Her eyes drip like the sky
Tears fall from her liquid brown eyes
She lets herself wish, just one more time,
That he'd just come back and make it right.
The power is the sky
Is impossible to deny.
The beauty of the storm
Sharply contrasts her feelings forlorn.
She hears his car- no, it is only a thunder clap
And her heart sinks heavily and breaks with a snap.
Ripples reflect on the growing puddles
Remnants of a decision detrimental.
Her pain inside brings more tears to her eyes
All she can do with her shattered heart is cry.
But she doesn't know
That he still loves her so.
She'll fall asleep in his arms tonight
He's driving back to make sure she's alright.
