In Need of Rain

this kiss crawls
over my cheek,
tugs
at my skin –
leaves me breathless,
speechless

i am,
desperately,
in need of rain
to mingle with
tears of disgust

& my lips
remain
thinned and stitched
while you are near

About Miriam E.

Somewhere along the way, I started writing. If you care to look beyond the jokes & smiles, you will find me a bit of an introvert, spinning through life one clumsy step at a time, fortunate to not have skinned my knees one too many times yet. When everything gets a little too drowned out by the white noise of this planet, I tend to reassemble myself at the keyboard in an attempt to slow down & breathe. English is my second language. I love how it feels on my tongue and how the words can be shaped and sculpted, so be patient with me β€” I am experimenting. Enjoy, if you will. Miriam
