Rainy days

wet image

On wet days like this

Memories flood in

Through the crevices and

Cracks of busy streets,

The ones we travelled

With flashes and beeps.

Caught in peak traffic

Steering dark corners

Behind drizzling mists.

Catching my breath

Remembering your kiss,

How drenched we were.

“Insatiable”, you called me

When you dared me to

Drive though skids and spins.

You egged me on- one last lap

On the highways and byways,

And dangerously slippery streets.

Rainy days will come again

But they will never be the same

Without you.
