i see the dark clouds overhead

i dread the dying sun
but i don't flee the pain in store
my legs too numb to run
.
i wait until the storm expands
and stand there locked in place
i stand beneath the rain you bring
and let it soak my face
.
i seek communion, more or less
confessing all my guilt
i am a castle made of sand
and not that firmly built
.
the rain turns into drops of blood
they bud like stains, divine
i stand beneath the rain you bring
and drink it up like wine
.
when God had tired of sins of man
the land he drenched with tears
he washed away his hopes and dreams
in tandem with his fears
.
your torrent's monumental
never gentle, coming down
i stand beneath the rain you bring
but damn you, i won't drown
