"The Sky's Tyranny"
The rain drizzles down,
slowly coating my skin
like a delicious glaze
while I'm eaten up by the wind.
I grasp my shield tightly
and defiantly watch it expand,
it's purpose to mitigate my misery
until these tyrants disband.
A misguided knight descends,
flashing his lightning across the sky
while the thundering of hooves
creates an oppressive lullaby.
Enraged, the tyrants squall.
I can't escape their indignation
as I am whipped by the wind
and slowly numbed to all sensation.
I seek shelter from the sky
as it seems my shield won't hold.
I can do nothing but observe
and seek the heat to warm the cold.
The clouds twist and churn
creating illusions in shades of gray.
I search for the silver lining
that may not come today.
The flow of time is muddied
as these waters soak us through
and our words are all smothered
as we wait for an adieu.
Our hearts are slowly flooded
and our endurance tested.
As our thoughts march along
to this pitter patter, unreseted.
The rain dances on shallow pools
as silver creases fill the skies.
Then silver turns to gold
and falls like arrows on our eyes.
Reflections gather our affections
as every pool is filled with light.
The world shines brightly at the end
of this artificial night.
The tyrants' strength begins to falter
I can't believe the battle's won
as he waves his victory banner.
Beyond the rainbow is the sun.

I wanted to write about the weather and it just kind of ended up this way. Hope you enjoy it.
(Recently Edited 7/28/16, I originally thought that it was too long when reading the whole thing so I cut it short and put it up here. I was rereading the full version after not looking at it for some time and realized I really like the full version better. I hope everyone else does as well.)
