Beauty of Solitude

In the midst of pain,
And the rigidity of rein,
I lingered and lain,
Showered by the rain.

The coolness of water,
Chilled the heat of summer
That blazed my heart,
Readying for a brand new start.

A faint rainbow appeared,
As the powerful sunrays seared
It’s magnificent colors
And majestic splendor.

Each ray untangled
The thread of stranglehold
Freeing the soul
Making it soar.

Forgiveness and hope
Water and rainbow
Cool and soothe
A wounded shadow
Of an unrecognizable
Phantom of sorrow.
