In quiet contemplation
I sit & listen to the rain
Its gentle beat, its soothing tone
Then its torrent once again
It is a natural cleanser
That washes quite away
All these pesky feelings
That are so determined to stay

I wish I had another soul

To sit with here, who might
Enjoy the rain & like to share
This music of the night
But alas I sit alone
And listen once again
To the symphony outside my window 
The throbbing singing of the rain


◄ Self Indulgent

Nice Try ....! ►

Love the serenity of this poem.
That line, wishing to sit with another soul.
I pictured myself siting next to you smiling and enjoying the peaceful sounds of the rain.

Thank you for your comments Wolfgar

It's interesting what you've said about the line

'I wish I had another soul'

being a stand alone line as when I read this I put a pause there before I continue - maybe I should leave a space in the text to indicate this?

Thanks again for taking the time to read & comment it's much appreciated x

I like the way you make the rain sexy by suggesting it throbs, seriously though its an interesting and different interpretation I haven't heard before, but it makes sense to me.

When I read the line "I wish I had another soul" I was hoping you were going to leave it as a stand alone statement. Personally, I just wish I had a soul!

Rain therapy works you can even download it, which I recommend.
