Contradictions

I love the smell after it pours,

But I avoid walking through the rain.

I love to feel the sunlight,

But I often hide from it.

I disdain the darkness beside me,

But I often desire it.

Tell Me Rain

Tell me rain,

Are you here to punish me?

Or are you here to wash away

The sins I’ve committed?

            Were you sent from below?

Were you sent from above?

            Have I been stricken by lightning

That paralyzed my brain?

            You are striking hard now,

Is that the answer I get?

            You don’t belong in May.
