A sonnet a day for February 2014 - day 28 - Rain

Wash this worry, doubt, wash this fear away.
O let this water continue to pour.
Make me clean again. Grow these plants today.
Others wish you'd go. I only want more.

I don't cover my head when I'm outside.
Let you fall down my face, across my cheeks.
Eye make up has streaked, it looked like I've cried.
I've been waiting this day for many weeks.

Way you bring this solitude and quiet.
Then I walk for miles with boots and a coat.
You clear my head from all of the riot.
Memorize poetry over by rote.

Keep me company, rain stay here with me.
O water fall from clouds and wet my feet.
