The rain came

Today the rain came

Dirlling down the drains

Lashing against my head

Beating at my mind

As it drenched my eyes

It filled them with dread

That the flood will not cease

I cover up and hide in the trees

Where the wolves are

With snaring teeth showing

Backing off, they howl

I face them as I go

If they see my back

They will tear me apart

I clear my eyes

I look up at the rain

Dirlling down and down

Lashing against my head

Waiting and wondering

For the sun to shine
