Names

On rainy days
When I put on sad music
When it’s grey and dewy outside
You come to mind
And I’ve no passion
Unless
The past trickles
Down the window
Unless
The memories pour
Into me and swim
You’d call me
Not often by my name
Leela
Lucy
Dolly
Delilah
I’d listen
I’d hear
Each singsong name would roll
Off the tip of your tongue
And dance
Into my ear drum
Inside of me
I’d listen and follow
And now
As the rain is dying down
As the dribbles lessen
As the fog clears
I remember the moment you stopped
And called me nothing
