The gray sky was crying, 
My tears mixed with the rain
I waited for the sunshine, 
But the sunshine never came

The rain poured down endlessly, 
Clouds would not disappear
The sun fades from memory,
The rain is all I hear

Suddenly I twinkle 
Catches my sad hopeless eyes
Now rain is only a sprinkle,
Clouds clear from the sky

I wrote this a long time ago about substance dependence


The twinkle became my sunshine,
But a mimic of the real
I said goodbye to sad times,
Only joy now I can feel

But my artificial sunshine
Changed as time went past
It's warmth not a soothing,
It's shine would no longer last

A long time had passed
Since I felt the rain
Terrified I was
To feel the pain again

So now every day I need it,
The twinkle, the Suns maim
For now if I am without it,
I'll drown in all the rain
