Dirty Raindrops


Drip on me your purity,
your cleanliness, and wash away
the sins, the ones I lock inside.

Take out my umbrella,
hide me under a rain coat,
and make me shutter,
drop no tear, when I cry.

No one likes being wet
when others are dry, and
no one likes dirty raindrops
when there’s nothing left to hide

  1. Vinny, this poem is amazing. I love this. You are so talented, it is border line insane. “no one likes dirty raindrops/when there’s nothing left to hide” this line is so pure and real and also my favorite line I have read in a long time.

    1. You’re too sweet, thanks, Dev. It’s weird, some things I write I don’t like and others do and visa-versa; this one I was kind of that for me; I’m glad you liked it though! Hope all is well over there. I saw you started on some book stuff, so cool!


      1. Ha well it is as good as it can be right now. I wish the stuff I liked came out as well as yours does! It is really amazing! :) How are things going for you? Thanks, I am trying something new for once, breaking out of my shell.
