Longing for passionate union with the beloved sometimes colours your cravings for the loved one, you want to engulf him with your love, overwhelm him with your passion...yet the yearning remains...*


Sometimes I feel I am the Rain

Sometimes I feel I am the rain,
Torrential rain...
Pouring down upon you
With all the passion of my being,
Soaking the parched earth of your being...
Quenching centuries long of thirst,
Overwhelming, overflowing,
Flooding you with all my love,
Engulfing you in my being,
Till we are all but one...

Sometimes I feel, I am
A tender soft drizzle...
Touching gently your cheeks,
Slide tenderly down to your lips,
Caress your hot glowing skin,
Wallowing in your touch,
Melting softly with your touch,
Evaporate into the air,
& Leave you longing for more...
Myself all the while,
Savouring sweet longing of yore...

Sometimes I feel, I am
That tiny drop of rain
In the vapour of your breath,
Breathing along with you,
Constantly inside you,
Going along with you,
Your every move and stride,
On a dark and gloomy day,
In a solid, dependable way...

On a hot summer day,
I cool your burning brow,
Sooth your troubled frown...
Yes, I think, I am
That lucky rain of spring
On a hot summer day,
Longing to be with you
In every which way...

Some time I feel, I am,
Upon the parched earth of your being'
That very summer Rain.

This is beautiful, sensual, loving all at once. Water is the ultimate life giver and we take it so for granted. It is a great read. I see why the editors and site members love it.

Hey I loved this poem. I love the interesting relationship you develop between love and nature, and the way the narrator truly seems to embody the essence of rain
2008-02-01



Only the sort of passion and longing you describe in your introduction can produce such glorious poetry. I do so know how you yearn for this seperated soulmate of yours. You envelope him in your love completely in this poem. Wonderful work Zoya, may you be reunited soon...All the best from Tai

This is the best i have read for today's surf on poetry:) i like the use of this rian metaphor yet very common but its in its significant way to express the poets feeling on her lover the way she pretends. may be its the nature itself but i love to imagine the form of fiances alltogether.
I love this poem so much. Its so poetic!

Full of passion, Zoya! Much has been written about rain, symbolically - cleansing; but to BE the rain - that was refreshing to me.
