Gray clouds hanging low in the sky
echo my feelings
help me to cry
the pain has been building now for days
the emotions
just won’t go away
These feelings of loneliness and despair
so very empty
like nobody cares
I sit at the window shivering in silence
as the rain falls
and stiffens my defiance
I have to fight off this depression
no matter the cost
or die in submission
the rain drums it’s rhythm steadily down
and soothes my soul
but no more feelings can be found
It’s easier that way you know
not to feel,
so I’ve been told
But I know there’s more to life
than all the hurting
the pain and the strife
Somebody help me, is anyone there?
I’m drowning 
in this rain of despair

    Hi Trudy :) Such an emotional write and one can feel the sadness in it--I think at one point or another we all have felt this way--hopefully that rainbows will come out soon to justify all that rain...thanks as well for your comments on my haiku :)

    The weight and heaviness of the rain is so apparent in one's heart. Well done, Trudy!!
