Yes the Adele song Set Fire to the Rain inspired this poem which I wanted to see what I would capture with such a poetic title.  This is my attempt to merely capture that title and translate it into a poem, this poem is based on the title only.

Set Fire to the Rain

We play
through the years
first swallowing
our fears
assuming;
though it appears
all will be
endless tears

Water
a colorless stain
faces mirror
our pain
with each memory
a stain
a live loved
in vain

With hope
and a prayer
happiness
far too rare
continuing this
affair
will only
end up where?

We pull up
the drain
setting fire
to the rain
finally ending
the insane
with
saying goodbye
to the pain

-poem by Justin Germino
