Solitary poet

Dappled –gray above pausing to rush down
Reminding me of me
I turn my face away from you
Please don’t remind me of me
The darker side I try to hide 
Beneath my smiles and sunny days I feel your abruption
Cloaked in steel eyes and haunted thoughts 
Dark nights I wait for your falling 
Somewhere I can feel the bittersweet pain 
Bring on your rain… 
Bring on your rain…
I grasp for warmth somewhere 
Only to feel alone 
Let me leave this earthly place with some feat
This paper I write on has comforted me for so long 
I know now I could never be without its trust
Drawn to your channel of solace 
Bring on your rain…
Resting here in the dark

    I see where you're coming from Laura. Sometimes life's shades of gray, seems to be against our very life itself. But I found that if we will refuse to let our own minds dominate us, but instead reach deeper down into our very heart, that I find a strength that I can only atribute to God, himself. We must control our minds. Sincerely, Love, Moses

    This is just how I've been feeling today, Laura. Very compelling poem, especially "Beneath my smiles and sunny days I feel your abruption." It's like two personalities in conflict with each other even though they inhabit the same mind. Well done, Laura! Love, Carolyn
