four poets. one poem. one mission – to take you to the magical world of poetry

Rain

i’ll never get over you,
i’ll never get enough of you
i’ll love you even if it pains, for every drop of the rain
is every bit of my pain i remember, i remember you

it drizzled when i first saw you
no umbrella nor coat to cover you
the rain accentuated your beauty
my eyes sparkled as I look at you intensely

it rained gently when i first kissed you
your lips mesmerized mine, that’s true
our kiss fascinated every inch of me
wished that with every rainfall, you’d kiss me

i longed for you when the rain falls
we used to play with each droplet
i longed for you when it rained harder
we used to cuddle as the wind blows

i missed you on rainy Sunday morning
we used to have nonsense bedroom chats
then we’d have our morning jog,
i would melt as you smile sweetly

but, damn you left me crying in vain
felt like there is no tomorrow
wished i could hold you once again
wished i could be with you forever

it rained heavily when you left me
your goodbye was my saddest in history
you just turned your back and walked away
and the rain cried with me on that day

i remembered you came into my life with no intentions
yet I’ve welcomed you with no hesitations
we chose to hold on even with complications
because it was worth all the risk, we believe

now you’re gone and left me in distraught
my heart’s aching but I shouldn’t be caught
tell me now how can I move on
and face these sad realities my own

the silence is deafening
yet there’s echoing in the horizon
as if you’re calling my name amidst the heavy rains
but when I looked around all I see
is blinding darkness, knife cutting through my veins

on gloomy days i’ll be calling your name
i fear my voice will be washed by the rains
i longed for the embrace we once shared
i wished yesterday was different and tomorrow’s the same
my decisions are crazy and now my fate is playing me

but, baby i tell you, come rain or sunshine
for whatever season, whatever reason
i will love you despite the pain
i will love you until we meet again

yes, i will love you even then

Rainbow

A collaboration of three elusive poets, whose love for the written words can be traced back even before Instagram and Facebook was born, even before the words, “friend zone or status complicated” were invented.
Three poets, one poem, one hope, one wish – to love and be loved eternally @michnavs, @chanticleer9 and @beruang_kuat

Rainbow

i’ve walked through the meadows,
among the darkest of clouds
i’ve walked through the horizon
with my greatest anticipation
of finding the one,
the one my heart longs
the one my soul yearns

but,

what if there ain’t you, waiting patiently?
what if the darkest of clouds won’t give in to a downpour?
what if it ain’t true,
that there is a rainbow after the rain?
will true love reign,
or will i be waiting in vain?

then,

the night falls
with no hope of light to show up
no moon, no stars to shine at night
no more rainbow to color the sky
no more music to play, no song to sing
the world fell apart
in complete silence

and as the morning breaks,

frustrations after frustrations
pain after pain
what else are you going to bring?
you just let them keep on coming.
oh, rainbow, why’s the sky avoiding you?
your colorful hues turned to mournful grey
is it because you’re now nothing but a display?
