The Rain

Tonight I sat with the french doors open and listened to the sound of the rain.
I lit candles around the room and turned on the stereo.

Fade Into You by Mazzy Star was playing softly.
I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath thats true

I poured a glass of wine and settled down into the couch to listen, pulling my throw blanket up close. The turbulance of the last week has left me feeling drained. And although I can still feel the brush of your lips on my mouth I feel lonely. Disconnected.

I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth

There's something comforting in the sound of rain. It takes me to a place of peace. A place where I feel more myself. I've always found comfort in water, the sound of it. Whether it's the crash of angry waves against a rocky shore or the bubbling rush of a hidden spring, I feel it inside me. A soothing re-connection with my metaphysical soul, as if I am merely a simulacrum of a woman, lost without my pelagic spirit.

Fade into you
I think its strange you never knew

I drank my wine and listened to the rain drops beat their own particular rhythm on the flagstones of the patio outside.

Tomorrow I think. Tomorrow we'll be better. We'll let the rain wash away the past and begin again.

    I like that song, too :-) But Fade Into You + rain = ultimate emo moment. I like this post, it reminds me of my rainy days. Gladly we have sunny days recently and my mood is sunny, too. Hope you feel better soon.

    Sorry I haven't been by yet guys. We got flooded. It's been a mess.

    I'll be there soon.

    MKL, you calling me Emo?
    We're birds of a feather lately. Heh.

    I'm still laughing about your comment as Kanye. Oh my! That made my day!

    13, We usually have a dearth of rain. I'm loving the sound of it. Even as my rose bushes wash down the street.

    The moment you desribed in your post was emo. I didn't call you emo ;)

    Thanks. Sorry that I called Kanye to react on your post, but I also think Beyoncé had one of the best articles of all times :P
