The Torn Canopy

The rains devoured us
Unsated waters fated for us
No higher ground existed
From which we were not overpowered
By the tyrannical wetness

Once such a holy thing
Now it downpours
With unholy consistency
Upon our moist hearts
Unable to regret this

Undeserved fault of ours
For which there is no clemency
The precipitate heavy drops
So quickly now eating the land
And us and the contours of things.
