“Her Rain”

Her rain fell   
         a deluge of broken dreams,   
                     frustrated desires, missed opportunities   
         drenching the world   
                     with her bitter storms   
Her rain fell   
         a flood of regrets and sublimation   
                     poured onto her children   
         drowning each of them   
                     with her skewed and tainted love   
Her rain fell   
         a watery veil of manipulation   
                     pushing against the banks of reality   
         overflowing her boundaries   
                     with her disillusions and dissatisfaction   
Her rain fell
