Code Purple: Day Twenty Seven

In the rain,
I feel hidden.
Enveloped
in a blanket
of grey.
The streets
are safe again,
and every face
is a stranger.
I can walk anywhere
and never fear
being caught
in a web
of past transgressions.
I am free
to live
and to inhale
the tears
of the sky
as they meld
with mine,
two beautiful strangers
in the night.
