precipitation, the love story/29

by poems & doodles

once upon a time the ocean felt sad
and no one could tell because the sea couldn’t cry.

it was old and powerful, incomprehensibly deep
and unspeakably blue… though it didn’t know why.

it lashed out at boats, on shorelines it crashed,
until defeated, it retreated, emotionally dry,

’til one day the rain fell in sheets from above
with a note that said:

here – tears for you.
the sky
