I close my eyes

And realize again

I'm alone

Rain pouring down my skin

My frozen cheeks

In the dark dark light

From a streetlamp above me

I suddenly notice

I'm smiling

This rainy night is mine

My own

I'm laughing outside

Alone

Splashing water

Soaking my clothes

Running tears

From a distant sky

I'm gazing

Upwards

Above me

The world is crying

The world is weeping

But not me

Not me

The grey air

Hide me

And I'm alone

Cheerful

Screaming out with joy

Drumming water

Twisting away

I'm not different

Not now

Today

A grey face in the nightshade

Wet, soaked through

Unrecognisable

I'm just like you

A shadow walking

Outside in the rain

A smile

These few moments

When we are

The same
