Girl in the Rain at the Airport, at Night

Posted in poetry, sonnet, Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 27, 2020 by Jarrod Boyle



Headlights blossom across the rainswept screen

As the rain hammers on the roof of the cab

When the rabble parts she’s suddenly seen

Dragging her little suitcase through the pack


Her lips, her brows and soundless bell of hair

Are as memory drew them, just the same; but

Her eyes are mercurial ghosts that skim the glare

And glide beneath the dappled shadows of the rain


My apprehensive kiss flows into a crude embrace

And the sharp breath through her nose is frustration

As she turns, looks out the window to hide her face

And disappointment corrodes my elation


Whether it’s love or courage, I hardly know

But this can only be perfect if I let her go.
