Black Cloud

Written by: Emma Mantle

This black cloud of mine is heavy
I think it's going to pour
one day it's rain will start to fall
and I know I'll drown for sure.

I'm waiting for the lightening strike
and the thunder start to roll
this cloud has followed me for weeks
it's now eating at my soul

It's something that I can't escape
this storm is overdue
I just hope when black clouds pass
there will be a better view.
