Oozing thoughts

It rained tonight

And drizzled across my mind, a thousand thoughts

That hummed and buzzed, shattered

Like glass beads across a hardened skull, the noise

Numbed the brain, as the beads

Rubbed against each other, teeth chattered

I wondered, maybe

The rain is to blame, thunder rumbled

And protested that it was not so, I remained callous

Listless eyes wandered

Across a wooden ceiling, rested themselves

On a rotating fan, round and round it went

Until I grew dizzy, the thoughts

Were quiet now, so was

The rain, there was

No one who would listen, the rain realized

That it wails in vain, and I realized

That I was all alone. So

The thoughts grew quiet and I

Ceased the chatter, bid farewell

To an indifferent ear, my thoughts

Laughed and did more bead grinding, tinkling as they ground

While I

Patiently listened, words poured

The rain recommenced and this time

I listened. Because it needed to be heard.

    The rain changes our perspectives… And sometimes we do have to listen, especially when thoughts and words are involved! Well done!

    • Yes….Rain has a way of speaking to our inner being which we choose to ignore most of the time.Rain is the perfect time to ponder,wonder over the marvels of life,death and everything in between.And thank you :)

    All alone and listening to the rain,
    ignoring your own thoughts, your own pain,
    because the rain needed to be heard,
    listen to the rain, its every word.
    I enjoyed this porm and your next one as well.
