I need it to rain

I need to hide to drown my sorrow to not feel obligated to stay a secret the darkness to blanket my self inflicted pain the thunder to stifle my screams the lightening to set me on fire I need it to rain... I need to be revitalized and invigorated to feel serene and tranquil to be calm and collected the darkness to bring me peace the thunder to direct my mind the lightening to guide my heart I need it to rain... I need to escape to feel the ground at my feet to feel the wind in my hair the darkness to blind my captor the thunder to clap in approval the lightening to sever my shackles I need it to rain... I need to grow to heighten my potential to cultivate and thrive the darkness to shelter my fraility the thunder to ward off any imminent danger the lightening to strike as my weapon I need it to rain... I need to be laid to rest for someone to cry for me for someone to long for me the darkness to resemble my abscence the thunder to echo my voice through your ears the lightening to flash visions of me before your eyes I need it to rain...

Alot of mixed emotions going on here...seems as though you need a comforter in a since. And it sounds like those that are around you don't care or not observant to your feelings. Also, we all have secrets..its the nature of who we are. You know as well as I know that we are here on earth for a reason...this is what I gather from this poem (probably over anaylized it)...an excellent write

I'm sorry, that's me... a huge ball of emotions. I do feel like I have a purpose but I feel at this time in my life my inner light has been dimmed by those around me which explains the beginning, me realizing I'm better than this and have so much to offer explains the rest. You didn't over anaylize anything.
