Let it Rain all Night

It smells like rain today

A dry unrest
A volcanic bed
Needs to be fed

The shadowy curtains roll overhead

Untamed hooves
Tearing through the surface
It's coming for me

Beckoning
Beholding
Benumbing

Let the duel begin.
I’ll contest
I’ll condemn
I’ll Resist
The irresistible

Only as long as I can.

Then I’ll weaken
Withdraw
And implore

Crush me
Conquer me
Enslave me
Complete me
With this defeat

Rip me
Leave me aching
Reduce me to dust
And dust in dust
Let us unite

And then,
let it rain all night.

sonorous,
i dont think we know each other but we have a poetic soul running in common, which got me to this and was surely worth it,
