Rainy Day Blues

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood


The rain keeps on falling,

And you are nowhere to be found.

Please come back I’m calling,

My yearning is painful now.

The warmth of your kiss,

Upon my soft, eager lips.

Your loving touch I miss,

Want you around my hips.

Oh won’t you come back,

So I can hold you tight.

From this pain I need slack,

And you can make it right.

Allow me to share your heart,

You needn’t keep it so close.

Pierce through mine like a dart,

Love like a drug, I need my dose.

Giving in to rainy day blues,

Lost in the void of thought.

Wish I could immerse in someone new,

But then COVID-19 might be caught.

Be My Savior

There aren't enough individuals out there spreading love, and with these rainy day blues kicking in it could really be used right now. Even better would be curling up next to a fire, maybe a little whiskey in hand, sharing stories of yore and aspirations for the future. Heck, hit me with some hot chocolate and a doodle book, we can write poetry and immortalize one another in print. Just make these rainy day blues go away, warm my frigid heart and soul with your love.

To which I say, why not both?

Thanks for reading.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 13, 2020:

Yeah, I know this feeling.

Tis better with someone you know than a new stranger.

Hope you find comfort in these rainy days.

Absolutely, Gypsy, how right you are. I was just getting cabin fever after four days of it!

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on April 11, 2020:

Wonderful poem even with all the rain. rainy days can be dreamy.

Thank you, Pamela, and I appreciate your comment very much!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 10, 2020:

Writing poetry on a rainy day is sure something to fill up the time. I like your lovely poem very much, Kyler.

I hope so, Donna! A great day to you as well!

Donna Rayne from Greenwood, Indiana on April 10, 2020:

Such a sweet poem, a lullaby to the heart and a morning kiss in the sunshine... soon the sun will shine and the sky is what will be blue, then you can laugh and smile and things will be happy again :)

I wish you a great day!

@Shauna: Absolutely, Shauna, and that is just the kind of spice that eliminates the rainy day blues! Make love, sip some hot chocolate, write some poetry, listen to the rain as you snuggle, then make some more love!

@Lorna, John, and Ruby: Thank you for your continued viewing of my meager little poems, it is always nice to see others enjoying my writings. Every view and comment serves to make these blues a little less so, if only we could all have a poetry gathering and pass the time with one another. Serving warm drinks and beautiful poetry to one another, it sounds like heaven to me.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 10, 2020:

" Love like a drug, I need my dose. " Beautiful line. Rain, rain go away, come back another day.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on April 10, 2020:

Rainy days are a good excuse to stay in bed (or wherever) and make love all day.

Lorna Lamon on April 10, 2020:

There is nothing like a romantic poem to beat those 'Rainy Day blues' Kyler. You have a romantic heart and it shows in this beautiful poem. I love the idea of writing poetry over a nice cup of hot chocolate.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on April 09, 2020:

It is always good to read some poetry to pass the time while virtually stuck at home. Your scenario sounds like a good one Kyler.

Kyler J Falk (author) from California on April 09, 2020:

Hopefully we get to have warmer, brighter days soon, Mitara. It is so unhealthy for me to be cooped up in the house like this, and just like your poem today, I'm finding myself hiding behind a smile. Ugh.

Thanks for reading, and stay safe as well.

Mitara N from South Africa on April 09, 2020:

I missed your poetry, always enjoy the read.

On the literal side, the weather since lockdown has been so cold, cloudy and rainy, so its been quite a few days of them rainy day blues.

They informed us of the extension to the lockdown until the end of April until further notice.

A nice warm cuppa always sounds so appealing, with some fire going, so romantic.

Great to see your poetic side again.

Take care and be safe
