The Rain Is Me


The rain is
me, now.

Grey, grey clouds
that hold my heart
and soul, captive;
heavy with leaden

Huge pearly
drops falling;
from my eyes??

My thoughts
my dreams, hopes
aspirations and expectations,
peopled in my mind-

by the pain
that never seems to stop.

That will never let
me be.

The downpour
of agony
sweeps all away.

A sun rises anew,
in the cycle of life again;
flood waters recede-
as they must.

To garner myself
my thoughts and
my precious self…

How tough it is-
to learn to live again.
