every time it rains,
i think of you.

because that's all there is--
the wind,
the water
and a quick breath of air
before we all go under.

every time it rains,
i swear i'm drowning.
they keep getting shorter.

Oh, they do. My advice is not to fight it, to embrace it. Soon enough the poems get so short you don't even have to write them at all. :D

Have you heard the song "Throw me a rope" by K.T. Tunstall? This piece makes me think of that song [which is so fantastic].

Short but powerful. :heart:

I think the last two lines are too obvious...I think it'd be better if it didn't have those and just ended with "before we all go under". But otherwise I like this a lot, I really do

Hmm, I'll take it into consideration. Thank you for honesty (that seems to be a rare trait quite often).

There's a lovely rhythm that flows in this, especially in the second verse. A personal preference though, is to elongate the pause in verses 1 and 2, like so:

every time it rains,
i think
of you.

and

every time it rains,
i swear
i'm drowning.

Regardless, it is still a beautiful piece. Perfect length with all the right elements working together. Great job!
