A Happy Memory

Rain
 
It was so cold,
 
We wandered through the woods to seemingly nowhere
 
Just because
 
Not even talking, just walking
 
It was raining, it was a nice feeling
 
My sweater was soaked, pulling me down
 
Although my mind felt weightless
 
My makeup ran down my face into mascara tears
 
We looked lovely
 
We walked along the train tracks slipping on the little rocks
 
Our silly laughter of nothingness ringing in our ears
 
Over the white sound of the rain came
 
Distant screams of a train
 
We held on to each other
 
Oblivious to our chattering teeth and shaking fingers
 
We waited
 
Its blue front came around the trees
 
Its lights caught on rain drops one after another
 
It flew past our faces
 
A passenger train,
 
The people it held
 
Gawked at the children standing in the cold
 
From inside they watched our faces fly by theirs
 
And in a second they were gone
 
We were robbed of our breath
 
Forcing us back
 
We burst
 
Everything was wonderful
 
Our smiles, not for a second slipped from our cold washed faces
 
We were so content, with everything, everyone
 
For a moment perhaps we were in love,
 
With life, with being a teenager, with each other
 
Our eyes wide with amazement,
 
We laughed.
 
That was the happiest I’ve ever been
 
I was in love with everything
