let me wash away

May 1, 2020


the rain is roaring down, drenching my face and making my clothes cling to my skin the way muffins stick to a tin that you forgot to grease. my hands are opened up to the heavens, and i strive to secure its secrets. every raindrop is a letter; an alphabet seeping into my soul and spelling out what i no longer know how to write. maybe if i drink in enough mysteries from the clouds, i will be able to understand what words mean.
I don't know why this came out in the style that it did.
The title is taken from Caught In The Storm from Smash. I guess this is a series now. It's just that that song really helps me express what I'm feeling.

    I love the power of this storm that comes through the piece. It really makes me think of a rainy season or typhoon, whether symbolic or not.
