Poem – Crystal Blue (By Melissa R. Mendelson)
The rain pounded the pavement
as if it were furious
over the lonely hearts
that hid in their rooms
with nobody to wipe away their tears
or make them smile,
but the rain did share their pain
and splattered kisses upon windows
of their homes
to console them
because the rain could see
the love they hid within.
