Rain ...




You stayed inside the house
guarding your peace.
But I had nothing to lose
So I came into the rain
and danced to the end of its alley. 
Rain
I didn’t know earlier
that you could have wings
and that I can fly with you! 
Rain
cover my agonizing veins,
whisper me your secrets,
I will collect your words in my palm,
tell me that I am the lover you dreamt of!
Let me touch your toes
and play with your tendrils.
Tell me you have come to lick my sores.
Caress my insomniac moan with your fingertips,
go round around me,
run after me,
settle in me.
Rain
Let me bear you a child.



I will surrender only to the Rain....

I liked the intensity of the mood and the sensuousness in the tone! This poem animates those rains that are potent enough to create and further life!
