rain will come

life is slipping through my fingers 
like water. each second another 
drop gone, another lick lost, 
another sip broken. when
is normality going to be 
normal again? i sit
on the floor in
pools of 

routines 

lost.

words 

drained.

fallen 

laughter.

but i know 
that just as fast 
as water falls through 
the cracks between my
fingers, rain will nourish
my dry palms once again.
that when air becomes tight, 
it loosens up again. that when
tears fall, they dry from sunlit eyes
hours later. that after a fire, new shrubs 
find abode upon soil. that as life slips away,
it will come back again. it will.
