Spitting Image

Drops patter with pity upon the window
In time with my beating heart
Well-suited for such a sensitive scene
Reflections of this nature
Merit nothing finer
Than a cold August monsoon
In which to lament
Is crying amid this weather legitimate?
A perfect cliche
For pathetic salty tears
Good fortune that my desire to drown
Was born long before this rain rolled in
