downpour

credit: Nobiru

they say to
“soak in your surroundings”
but they never told me
when to stop,
and now
i’m drowning.

i’m over-stimulated
there’s too much to take in.

i’m drowning, 
in anxiety,
but i’m still dry
and that’s why
i love the downpour
of spring–

it reassures me the drowning
is only in my mind.
