Like Rain


Iphigene Here.

Because celebrating love is something we’re doing big this year, I’ve decided to share an original poem. I wrote this back in 2007 and it was inspired by the girl a friend of mine was pining for.

Like Rain©

by Iphigene Daradar

She loves you like rain

in too much heat

from the ocean

she rises to your

cloud like embrace.

she lingers

fill you up to heavy

and she falls

slowly easing out

of your soft arms

and crashing to the ground 

in tears

marrying with hot asphalt

til her sheet of charcoal concrete

dries to gray

and you

stare down

floating aimlessly

til she rises from her sea

and be rain

like she always is.


I hope you enjoy it. Have you ever experienced being loved like rain?
