Only the Rain

falling out of love hurts
there’s no more to look forward to
even the littlest things
that would make you stop and smile
it fades away and resolves back into
a monotonous wash of grey

the sun only stares
the blue skies seem to mock
as birds who once sang your love songs
now grate on broken nerves

only the rain understands
as it tosses itself to the ground
to run gently over your shattered hopes
soothingly caressing your face
as if to say “I know your pain”
