The Devil in Reverse

So often I sit and wait
Smile when the storm greets me
Raindrops float in the air
Understand without thinking
Always this pause
I make room within
Brighten when the sky goes dark
The storm came to cleanse me
I speak loud enough

Let everything fall
It rains hard
Your body will be loved again
Water floods the ditches
I wash my feet in it
I become bare
Listen to invisible birds sing
Disappear down a road glowing with sunlight
I never have to walk far
