Rain

Spread the love

You fell on me
like drops of rain
when I walked in
flames of hot despair.

  4. I liked the contrasting sensations of the cold rain, and the flames of despair. Totally mimics the contradictory feelings you get when hanging out with an unrequited crush. And the feelings of nerves in general. Cold, ticklish sweat on your face, uncontrollable blushing, the heat of embarrassment prickling your limbs… aaaghhh. Too real
