Deluge of Despondency

Rain pounding my soul in torrents
 
Feelings of despair overwhelming
A band around my heart restricting flow

Non-existent love in a world deplete of compassion
Harried existence to a futile end of unacknowledged achievements
A specter in the streets of humanity

Can you see me, hear me, touch me?
I cry alone but I cry for all.

Despair pounding my soul in torrents
