Then Came The Rain to Stop Motion Superfight 
Where there once was love has turned into a fight 
Where there once was peace as turned into a superfight 


Then Came The Rain (lyrical poem) 

Where even love can lose its way
Two lovers turn to face their day
All lesser hopes have gone astray
With all their bruises on display
-
Now what went wrong and what so right
Are just mere words another’s fight
Which will not help them through this blight
To be once more each other’s light
-
And then came the rain
With its own refrain
Just what would it drain
And when its gone what would remain
-
Did they need the rain
To bring back the strain
And explain the pain
And when its gone will they remain
-
Their night gave way to heaven’s tears
Reminders through those long lost years
Their happiness was built in tiers
And dancing dreams removed all fears
-
Where are those dreams of long ago
So much of life they came to know
So much of life they had to show
So much of life would not let go
-
And then came the rain
With its own refrain
Just what would it drain
And when its gone what would remain
-
Did they need the rain
To bring back the strain
And explain the pain
And when its gone will they remain
-
Where even love can lose its way
Are just mere words another’s fight
Their happiness was built in tiers
So much of life would not let go 


A love affair turned sour is given some light in this lyrical poem. As with most song lyrics the meter (beats) is kept tight. The structure of the poem is as follows: V,V, C1, C2, V, V, C1, C2, V (Where V = verse and C = chorus). The last verse of the poem offers us some insight into the couple and why they stay together. It is composed of the lines of the previous versus, in the order each line appeared. 

When Arlene and I were doing our charity work, we met this unusual couple.They were always one of the first to volunteer and were hard workers. From the outside no one could tell that there was a problem. When Arlene and I had to drop things off at their house, we gained an unexpected insight. The couple fought. Even in front of Arlene and me. We had never seen this side of the couple. We asked others, who knew the couple about them. "Oh yes, they hate each other. They're always fighting", came their answers. But why were they (both) one of the first to volunteer? Here's where the weird gets weirder. Away from the volunteer work this couple was always fighting. Get them alone, away from each other, each would talk fondly of the other. The great memories. Not an unpleasant word was spoken of the other. It was like one was talking to completely different people. A different person a different time. Maybe. 

I don't have to tell anyone how special relationships can be. It is amazing that when two individuals work together, they can be more together than the sum of their parts. When it comes to people: one plus one can equal so much more. Then there are the memories shared. The moments made together. Then there is the hope. The helping hand. The support. The smiles. And on and on. What is really amazing is that there is something unique that ties us to that someone special in our life, and them to us. Think about it. Billions of people and here is something special, just for us. Memories aside; It may last for a lifetime or it may only be for a moment, but it is a treasure so enjoy.

There are fights then there are superfights 


SUPERFIGHT is the video game, developed by Pipeworks Studio, of absurd arguments with friends, or delightful internet strangers. Players battle with their wits to determine who would win hypothetical fights between characters with super powers and super problems. Nothing even close to the creation of Corridor Digital. But Corridor does set up an absurd argument between strangers to create a delightful stop motion video.

You can never control who you fall in love with, 
even when you're in the most sad, confused 
time of your life. You don't fall in love with 
people because they're fun. It just happens. 
Kirsten Dunst

  1. One of my brothers and his wife constantly snipe at each other in public. They have been married for over forty years, love each other dearly, and tear each other down in public. Which upsets me. Their life, but...

  2. it is interesting how those that can do so much good in the world through their charity can fall prey to pain and shattering in private. i wonder if we let down the masks if we could find healing.

    nice poem as well. smiles.

    1. As I figured it: It was a door of reconnecting.
      You have an interesting point.
      Thank you for connecting

  3. I know a couple thats been together for many years, have four children and a grand child. They always fought, fist fought for that matter. But they loved and cared for each other dearly. I never understood that type of relationship. I prefer the softer side of things.
