A Love Affair With The Rain - Poem by Eloida Capuno

they say when you get to know something
or somebody for a long time
you develop love or hate

like the rain, for one
i love it when it comes unexpectedly
on a hot summer day
it becomes a tonic
and i long for it more and more
like an addiction
yearning for the smell of a refreshed
earth after each downpour

but when it comes incessantly
overstaying like an alien would
the rain becomes a bore
you'd wish for it to go and never
to return because you miss the sun
and you want your earth dry

i will miss the rain when it does not come
and hate it when it floods no end
like tears that won't subside
when there are no more reasons to cry.
