Poem: As You Walk Away

I’ve always loved the rain
For the soft splattering from the sky
That is absorbed into the ground
The way my tears soak into
Your skin as you tell me
That it’ll be okay.

Okay remains a variable
Constant that simplifies
The absorption of our love
Into the world around us.

We’re losing each other
As the drop loses itself
In the concrete pavement,
Run down by cars,
Empty of emotion
Until it separates
Inevitably alone
In an unfamiliar world.

It’ll be okay, you say,
As my tear dries on your skin,
And as you walk away
