I just had a really bad day

Tears Fall Like Rain

March 18, 2021


People say rain only comes on stormy skies
Not skies that are clear, and gray.
Not when skies have white scratches on them,
Like the kind that airplanes sometimes make 
When they cut through that endless pool of blue

Rain can come on clear gray skies, too
Skies that are calm can make rain fall like
Little diamonds, rough glass shards that 
Fall among the dewy grass and 
Lie there.

Rain can come on all sorts of skies
They don't have to be stormy
They don't have to be angry, 
They don't have to have thunder.

Rain can come on a soft sky. 
That's quiet, and maybe has a 
Few clouds, drifting across it 
Beauty innate, unchanged by 
Everything, except 
The rain.

It's kind of the same with tears, too.

    i'm so sorry. this is a really powerful concept. it's true—tears come on days when it all seems fine, when everyone thinks you're fine.
    re: aw, thank you! unfortunately, i got nothing else to give on that story. no ideas and little motivation and little time. but i'll keep it in mind... you never know what could happen!

    I'm having a bad day too, but reading this helped! I loved your use of words and especially the line "Not when skies have white scratches on them". Here's to hoping both of our days improve!
