rain rein reign rayn

when the sky fyres cool
flicker the haughty hues
on the coast of night
the evening orb
sets like a jewel
descends as a sliver of light
swiftly following
their beloved
beyond the veil

in those precious hours
bald eyes drink in
the last stray
murmurs of day
quaff the final drops
of nectar from the fray
leave behind the fury
and the cray cray way

boundless blue
casts off its luster
like heavy bathrobe
it had worn all day
reveals the secrets
it had concealed
now softly shine
the distant candles
like thousand teardrops
of sweet night

as i watch
these tears of night
feel their rayn
upon my soul
i see a hundred
sometimes a thousand
but know from
eyes augmented
a septillion stars
watch one another

and i think of those
who we have lost
of those who still
shine on each day
and those who’re
yet to come
as i watch
these tears of night
feel their rayn
upon my soul
this naked sky
makes me cry

  1. The title kind of threw me off at first..But in the end I find it right for this unique piece of poem. Well done.
