in the rain

Updated on March 22, 2016

so here I stand, whats left of me,
I sit and wait, you watch me bleed,
in the rain I am alone, trying to fill this empty hole,
it rips and tears, down to my soul.

this rain it seems my only friend,
I can count on in the end.
it wraps around me holding me close,
and you just leave me all alone.

this rain will break my endless fall,
while you leave me these empty walls.
its there for me through anything
and you won't be there anyway.

this rain it washes my tears away,
and you don't listen to a thing.
this rain surrounds me and it drowns me,
with its love it carries me away.

and you surround me ever counting,
the days that you say you wasted,
with me and doubting every moment
ever shared with me and every secret bared,
at the expense of sounding so scared
at my expense for you were they shared.

so if you ask me when i'm alright,
i'll look at you and say tonight.
but in your heart and mine we know,
that without you I will never show.

      I love poetry like this that makes your audience feel such intense emotions. I love to write dark poetry too. Great piece of work. I hit many buttons.
