The Eighth Drop of "Tears"


Love supplies a mysterious power,
into your hands.
When you write about rain,
it rains.
And when you write about tears,
you cry.

It is raining. Rain is good. I feel tears in my eyes. Tears also are good. I write and the raindrops sweep away words from my paper leaving it blank, wet. And there is no one to hold an umbrella for me. Therefore, there won't be a new drop of tear anymore.

Though it won't end, let me stop now.

i hope you don't think of me as unkind here but in my experience, even when someone is there, they may not want to hold your umbrella :( i have been with my husband for 36 years, discovering too late that he is a selfish man so i am holding my own umbrella and trying very hard not to dream of someone who will hold it for me.
anulal, this post is simply wonderful, every word touching my heart. please be careful to find that 'just right' holder of your umbrella and keeping in mind that they will need you to hold theirs, as well!
you are truly a poet with depth and i love to read your work...
