the girl / the rain

By @ThatFishyNerd

An ode to my friend, because it's her birthday today!

Chapter 1

the girl who was embraced by the heavenly skies

who blooms in the rain, when the rest hide

she who looks beautiful even when everyone is blind

the girl whose portrait i have so well memorised

when everyone sees the world in black and blue

she has the courage to see in different hues

the only girl who paints with her words, strokes of gold

on empty canvases that with her words, became whole

summers spent in ice kept her warm

all ignorance and negativity kept at bay

comes the rain, all the words washed away

words that used to be beautiful before the storm

dark clouds loom and hover

and from some thoughts she couldn’t take cover

but soon the tempest shall quiet down to a hush

life went slow yet felt like a rush

making limits to nature shouldn’t be allowed

no one has the right to command the trees and the clouds

you can’t tell her to diminish her might

you can’t tell a flower to die when it’s in the light

but she’ll pick up her brush

because her words won’t be silenced

and by taking the difficult lane

she’ll understand the rain

the girl who is hardly a girl anymore

she, who, more than anyone her age

has felt more love and felt more pain

she is wise beyond her years

the lady of nostalgia, who is friends with the rain
