Summer Rain

I lost them one by one.

And I lost them again and again.

Just like the earth getting wet

By the falling drops of summer rain.

And they fell from some corner in the sky

That turned murky red before the fall.

And never did this thought pass by

That slow, but I was losing them all.

And it felt lighter to wake up,

With one more stick down-

An autumn-struck tree I became

With one more less leaf in its crown.

And every day kept changing.

But to me they were all the same.

But, soon came a rainy summer night

When I looked around me in hazy light

Not a single soul standing with me there

But creepy shadows with pounding stares.

And thus in that beautiful summer rain.

I stood alone.

And friendless.
