Slow Dance in the Rain


The rain plays its own rhythm of music tonight
Teasing the darkness with fingers of light
Here ‘neath the canopy of teardrops and sighs
I see the simple truth caught in your eyes
Heartache is tearing a sea from the skies

I slip my fingers through the blue of the air
Midnight and memories are a ruthless pair
The kiss of you lingers in its darkened refrain
A sonnet of longing in every strain
Heartache is dancing alone in the rain

Rain-thickened heartbeat and tear-stricken sigh
Loneliness bleeding from heaven’s dark eye
Holding me closer in a dear memory
Of laughter and whispers and you here with me
Heartache is the music of what used to be
