rain ᵟ drops


through the empty streets at night


raindrops hit the roof


as sharp as accusations

hurled at an innocent heart

  1. dang….that last stanza sneaks up on you….
    love the artistry in making the raindrops as well…

    This is amazing and the last two lines really shock me…
    Awesome writing :-)

  3. This is lovely. I read it out loud, and the contrast in those sharp last two lines is very effective. Well crafted.

  4. This gives me a real sense of really loud fat raindrops, the kind that make such a loud noise they invade your brain… nice imagery.

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
