My life was warm and sunny before we met, and then I became caught in your rainstorm.

I nearly drowned as your words rained down on my head.

The force of your wind blew my soul open wide.

I did not scream or cry.

All I could do was stay alive, hoping the storm would abate.

But it never did, not for long.

Now you are gone.

There are no more clouds or rain.

I never once heard you say “sorry”, but I forgive you anyway because I will not let the regret of not doing so cause another rainstorm of pain.
