internal strife

she wanted to feel
the raindrops on her face
spread out her arms
and embrace a friend
fight to keep her eyes open
as she looked up and faced
the steady downpour
she wanted to feel
water against her skin
soothing and wonderful
caring and cleansing
and the tingling sensation
of rivulets down her face

but you were worried
about raincoats
and sodden clothes
that would have to be dried

caught in the crossfire between
childhood and stardom
