Me and the rain


Me and the Rain


I look out my window, I see that the sky has darkened and I smile. I run outside as thick grey clouds gather above. Thunder rumbles in the far distance and my heart begins to race. The winds kick up speed and blow wildly through my hair, I breathe it in deep to get as much as I can of that intoxicating freshness into my lungs. There was another crackle of thunder just above me. It’s time. I hold my breath and raise my face to the sky just as the clouds burst open and let loose with all it has held. The rain hits my skin and I can feel nothing, think of nothing. It’s just me and the cooling drops that seem to wipe away every bit of sorrow, frustration, stress and loneliness that I have ever felt and I am just simply…happy. Face still to the sky, eyes closed, I smile, spread my arms out wide and then I begin to spin. Slowly at first, I turn round and round but as the rain falls harder I turn faster and faster until there is nothing; no wind, no thunder, no lightning just me and the rain. I am the rain and the rain is me. We are one. We are free. At that moment I am the happiest that I can ever be, so I cry. My tears come from my heart, I am too overjoyed to keep it in but I don’t mind, no one’s around to see because it’s just me and the rain and I am happy. Finally the rain lets up, there are only sprinkles now and I slowly stop spinning. I can’t help but feel the sunshine in my heart as the clouds move on and I begin to feel the heat from the sun as it peeks from behind a cloud. I smile again as I wiggle my toes in the rain puddle that gathered around my bare feet and as I watch the clouds move away I whisper, “Good by my love, my happiness, my sweet until we are one again I will think of you in my dreams.”




To be kissed in the Rain


To be kissed in the rain would be magical.


To be kissed in the rain would be Romantic.


To be kissed with soft lips upon mine as the rain hits our skin would be invigorating.


To be kissed with as much passion as the rain is giving would be sexy.


To be kissed with as much love as I feel for the rain would be mind blowing.


To be kissed by YOU, my LOVE, in the rain would be a dream come true.

I think you did very well transitioning all your sentences together, the flow was done very nicely. I like the concept, because I think I can relate to it at least a little myself. For I've noticed that I always have the urge to just go walking in the middle of a monsoon, there's something relaxing about walking out and all you can hear is the patter of raindrops. Don't even give a damn about getting soaked. Well done!

This was really good and enjoyable to read. It is surprising how we can love two opposites so equally, rain and sun; winter and summer, etc.
