Well April is the most rainy month. And rain can be a metaphor for many things. Endicott College Creative Writing student Jason L. Roberts has a lot to say on the subject.

 

Rain

 

Rain
It’s all that’s around here
Rain
And false hope
This city has nothing to offer but
Rain
The morals trickle down the sewer drain
The dripping is endless
Trash migrates with the help of rivers made by
Rain
It wasn’t always this way
She brought happiness and sunshine
Her aura of beauty was a beacon in the darkness
When she was around, there was never any
Rain
I visit her every night
But she never makes a peep
She doesn’t have to talk for me to know of her love
My eyes tingle with a little salty burn
I can’t tell if it’s my own creation or if it’s just
Rain

 

– Jason L. Roberts
