Rainy days

I can feel it beating
On the roof, the steady
Tap-tap-tap of rain.
The air is cool, heavy with
Silence, I am alone, though
Surrounded by bodies.

There is something isolating
About the rain, the peace
It brings. Hushed voices seem
More appropriate than laughter.
Though I can only see it through
The window pane, I still feel
Cleaner,
For once the sin is washed away
