Rain

Poem By Bryan Altendorf

Falling from the skies...
Falling from my eyes…
Thunder and lightning filling up the skies
Lighting brings back memories
Thunder pummels the feeling back
Watching the rain wash things away…

Falling from the skies...
Falling from my eyes…
Sweet friends slowly vanishing
Walking on alone and unsure
From within it kept on pouring
Watching the rain wash things away…

Falling from the skies...
Falling from my eyes…
The clouds are like my soul
They hide the sun, like I hid my feelings
Searching for winds to dissolve the haze
Watching the rain wash things away…

Falling from the skies...
Falling from my eyes…
Untamed, pristine, unique
Justifying, liberating, priceless
The ultimate gift from the heavens
Watching the rain wash things away…

Falling from the skies...
Falling from my eyes…
Even washing away walls, built of stone
Freeing us from the hurt, trapped inside
Allowing change and understanding
Watching the rain wash things away

The Knife

Cutting, Tearing
Stuck in and never pulled out

Fighting, Crying

I Will Be Here…

Sometimes I close my eyes and imagine you’re holding me
Your chest pressed against my back
Your right hand caressing my arm
Your legs wrapped tenderly with mine

The Sparklers Within!

Alive in the darkness, our sparklers eagerly burn
With a bright light at the center, for all to see
From passion fueling the fierce blaze
Starting from the initial time that we met

Searching

Captivated by the dance of a waterfalls’ new journey, unleashed by winters clutches, cold yet surreal, but I’m still looking…
Waking up to the sounds of a campfire cracking and popping into the crisp night air, startled by the sound, yet peacefully falling back asleep, listening…
Playfully trying to inhale the first fragrant smell of a flower being released from there slumber of an early morning shower, while still thirsty for the taste for life’s simple pleasers…
Or simply being touched by the grasping hand of my newborn baby firmly attached to my little finger, unsure, unyielding, but still unwilling to let go…

Raining Lust

Flashing by a glimpse of craving
The hope of lovers wet with dew
Drizzling tiny droplets of longing
Steaming up their wants in a fog,
