You Stood There

you stood there in the pouring rain, cupping your hands as if collecting stardust

stopped in my tracks, I swore I saw shooting stars dancing in your palms

not wanting to disturb you, as the world swirled around in chaos, you, a pillar

of calm serenity, your gaze upward and unfazed, soaking to the bone, smiling,

time stopped — my eyes took a picture and framed you with gilded memory

to be retrieved some future rainy day when the only thing felt is gloom

your inner light captured amidst pelting spheres, tears dropped from the sky

reflecting only the truth of your beauty, magnifying the darkness

in such a way, even it

had to smile
