Rain Revelation

Amy Peter 

Today walking back to your house, 

I held the umbrella for us. 

But I realized something unsettling to my heart.

That I would do anything to keep you dry, 

but you wouldn't hop a puddle for me.

It's true. 

You don't care enough for me, 

for me to care this much about you.

I'll find my puddle hopper, 

I'll find my river forder. 

I'll find my ocean crosser,

but you don't deserve someone like me

who'd cross oceans for you.
