For Just One Moment
She wanted to return
to the complete relaxed state,
where her mind would no longer race.
The rain is ongoing and appears to never cease
but she doesn’t complain as
it washes over the earth
and scrubs at the demons
consuming her soul.
The soft, comfort
coming from the melodious sound
of the even breaths next to her
keep her warm
but soon the urge will come to stir
and disrupt the tranquility
to bring in the cold that we call reality.
