rain dance

summer showers
a rainy night in July
warm, peaceful, wet
somewhere a Goddess cries
long, lonely tears
for a love that cuts the heart
a love that fills the soul
falling, ever falling
slow and steady against the fabric
you and I beneath
shelter from the storm
huddled close together
arms entwined
hearts entwined
thoughts enshrined
passing strangers on their way
wouldn't turn a dog out
no haven for two lost bitches
shouldn't be out here
elsewhere together
sleeping - let them lie
it's that time again
separate the inseparable
torn asunder
two hearts are raining
two souls are crying
eyes dry with the confidence
that too much practice brings
how much more of this can we take
as much as we must - no less
how many times are our hearts to break
before we are allowed to be
