Analysis of Nii Aykwei Parkes' poem 'Sometimes I like it to rain'?

  • 0 votes

Sometimes I like it to rainHeavy, relentless and loud,So you burrow into me like pain,And inhale me slow and free.I like the clouds to stretchAnd darken, and shadow the worldAs water mimics prison bars,And we bond like inmates.For at these times the sunRestrains its prying eyes,Neighbours melt in the gloom,And we are alone in loveIt is morning,But neither day nor night;You are neither you nor II am neither prisoner nor free.

I am struggling to analyse this poem and any help would be appreciated
