The Darkening Storm

as rain begins to fall from the sky
my forgotten memories make me cry
I feel forsaken and I don't know why
my entire body begs to die
as tears slowly fall from the sky

the rain comes down harder still
and I force down a bitter pill
a pill of sorrow and regret
of all the fears I've never met
of what I should have always been
all just memories in the end

the sky blackens with the storm
and I begin to slowly mourn
everything that has been torn
my heart, my soul, is all forlorn
as I darken with the storm

near the end of the day
the rain begins to ebb away
but the darkness lingers still
and I wonder why, until
I realize with a start
that the darkness is my heart

    I think if you dwell to much on your regrets and disappointments you will never move forward... it's hard, I know, but well worth the effort... God bless, Keith

Was I just another "THING" in your life that you knew you were just gonna throw away the next day? I want the honest to god TRUTH!!!!! Love (I Think) Your Friend Alexz ^n^

    Homie cant you just at least be friends wit her? You really made her upset and hurt her real bad. I love her like my sister if you just tell her then maybe she will quit blammin herself. think bout it, you really hurt a sweet and loving that did nothing to you but yet youre ignorin her.
