About the poem
I wrote this poem at the start of a 1 month break from my long distance boyfriend. We’ve been dating for half a year, and we both have a lot going on and it’s hard to focus on the relationship while keeping up long distance. I was lying awake just wishing he was by my side, wishing that everything was perfect, just like a fairytale.
I woke up to the pitter patter of the rain
or was it the sound of my heart beating
like a stone on my window; the reality of a dream we all long
Prince Charming in my yard, calling “let your hair down”
I go to greet your white horse; carry me off into the sunset. My room is dark, lit by the moon, and I lay alone, wishing more than ever that you would be the perfuse downpour that rains from the heavens.
