the cool wind numbs the pain

the small droplets of water

look just like rain

riding high in the ebony sky

light a night wing

flashes in the distance so

similar to lightning

the booming sounds afterward

make you wonder

whether or not it is thunder

the fact that the sun is not in sight

might make you think

the oppressive darkness is night

but it’s not

it’s only the pain

brought back again
