The rain the roof and the woman......a poem

Updated on November 1, 2013

Opening the door to a pleasant surprise
standing there this woman with
incredibly questioning
My thoughts immediately to the
sound of the rain and without
a need to ask

Without a word I take her hand
to the comfort of the darkness
the drumming on
the metal roof
and the soft moans of her release
quelling her needs

The feel of this woman's body through
soft rising hem and the
surrender of her emotions
the wetness on her lips
and the rain
blend with her
I'll never understand the tears

But I know what will stop them
much later
the tears are gone
and she lies
spent and

And as I pretend to sleep
I hear her footsteps
on my stairs
soft nylon stockinged feet
without a word
she leaves
she always leaves
she always leaves

I'm so glad that it rained again........

      Again - when it comes to water (rain or river) your imagery about women is that of a Master of poetry in motion. Superb, dear Ed

      Very romantic, Ed. Also mysterious and slightly regretful, yet thankful. . .interesting. Quite a few emotions, actually.

      Voted up and awesome. Incredibly sweet and romantic and a bit sad. I love the sound of rain on the roof and dreamy, misty and rainy days. Hugs to you Ed. Passing this on.
