Trapped in the Rain

Trapped in the rain
I slowly walked down 
The crowded street.
As my rain soaked hair 
covers my face as
I slowly drag my feet across the ground,

As the people around me no longer 
seem human but just
tall black figures.
I slowly walk as I listen to the taping 
of the rain that echoes on
the pavement,

My pale brown eyes are filled
with emptiness and no emotion
that seem to go on forever.
I walk with no destination in mind 
No thought, or purpose,
I walk.

The tall black figures
grow blurry as my pale brown eyes
begin to swell with tears,
And slowly roll down 
My cheeks and hit the ground.

Soon I can no longer tell the
difference between the ice cold
tears that run down my face,
and the ice cold rain that falls on my cheeks.

I walk without speaking, 
only hearing the echos of 
foot steps and rain.
As i walk I leave foot prints on the ground 
But they are soon 
erased by the falling rain.

Trapped in the rain 
I walk as the tall black
figures crowd the street
that seems to be growing smaller,
and my tears still fall and 
I walk down the street
And the rain surrounds me
And the sky and I cry
