in my dark

in my dark

my dark

man

asks me to

put my

hands out

wait for

night rain

 

when it

falls says

his heart

falls with

it soft heart

of this

dark hard

man in my

wet trembling

hands

 

how I love

the steady

raining

man how I 

love how his

heart is

now in my

hands falling no

more though

I am
