She was Summer Storms

So I brought you a pretty cool prompt full of lots of words to use! Here’s my take on it. Enjoy!

She had this way of sipping denial
One hundred proof, straight chasing like whiskey
Her restless mind swayed by expectations
And she only sleeps when it’s raining

Her voice held the shiver of jittering emotions
Never able to hide her mask of Cain
I thought, this girl could sing her own obituary
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?

She held the curtain closed like a consolation prize
Left me dangling with the burden of proof
I heard the music from the basement of her soul
And rain falls angry on the tin roof

Her lips were swollen with promises of melodies
And I was tumbling like bubbling champagne
I watched the storm clouds brew in her eyes
And I wonder, still I wonder who’ll stop the rain

  1. I can vividly picture this being crooned by a femme fatale in a smoky jazz club. I hope this gets a rainfall shower of compliments because it deserves it. It should also be belted out by Jessica Rabbit. I have several favourite lines but the idea of sipping on denial is a killer right out the gate and all the other lines fit very well together to provide a sultry vibe. Very cool indeed.
