Liquid bullets

Hit my body

With a cold-blooded chill;

The drops, like pearls,

 

From the light above,

Into the shadows of puddles.

And I twist and turn

In the rain,

 

As if it were an old friend.

A small boy's laugh

Echoes in my heart

And sings in my ears

 

Until I burst with bliss.

The scarred soul

Of mine sings with ecstasy

As the coldness numbs

 

 

My pain and my past.

My happiness

Is tangible in the air,

And the wind hums

 

With the harmony

Of my being;

Broken laughs

Turn to sunshine

 

Amidst the rain,

And let us dance and dare

Nature and twirl

In the storm until

 

Dizzy and delirious

With delight.

Run, run, run,

Our joyous smiles

 

Imprinted onto our faces.

Sunshine may be hidden,

But not inside our hearts,

For we laugh and live and love.

 

Time is endless

In our delirium of dances;

Liquid bullets may hit my chest

But my heart only begins beating again.

I'm breaking constantly, continuously and always, it's just that nobody sees it - but I'm fine with that, as long as there's something to fix me, too. ~ Me

Dedicated to: my brothers, I guess :P

Because I love my older brother and I love being an older sister. To my little brother who manages to bring out my maternal and somewhat-motherly side, and to my older brother whom I love but am so distanced with through years of separation. Because despite the headaches and heartaches that they bring, I am and always will love them. They are on the top of my list of 'Best (little) Men In The World'.

Inspiration for the poem here.

Three poems behind (including today), and tomorrow's the last day and the last poem. Still determined that I will make it. Questionable if I will make it with the little sanity I have left still in tact, but determined to end this tomorrow nonetheless no matter what.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading! smile2

Way cool Night_Sky. As soon as I read "Liquid bullets hit my body with a cold blooded chill', you had me. Took me right back to being caught in the rain on my bike the second trip out this year. You must have been there. Perfectly describing my feelings with the words that failed me. I retreated for a glass of bourbon rather than a pen when I got home. Loved the ending................

Those individuals who deem themselves perfect barely scratch an elbow in their fall from grace. Wm Steele

Thanks @Killerelite :) No, sorry, wasn't there when you were driving through the rain :P And going for a glass of bourbon is just as well, a nice ending to a good day in the rain! Would've loved to do that, but I wanted to immortalize that moment forever in a poem; worked, don't you think?

I love the almost-contradictions if that makes sense...for instance, the drops like pearls. Your way with words and descriptions is truly incredible, and I think this is one of my favorite of your poems!
