Tell It To the Rain

Like the cloud, I am collecting the moisture in memory, Soaking up the solitude, I have been alone in misery. Feeling full on failure, droplet wall builds on my skin, Heavy with weight of the world, sadness is soaked in. Like the cloud, I feel the lightening pulsing inside, Anger and agony on a bolt of energy ride. Thunder is my roar, ominous warnings shy to the volcanic eruption that is my sky. Like the cloud, I hear the air slice apart in broken fear, And I collect all things wet and drip them in a tear. Upon the world I release all my anxiety and pain, Captured inside capsules, I tell it to the rain. Like the cloud, I pour my soul from the height of hurt, And you wear my teardrops there, saturated white t-shirt. Parachute promises falling, raindrops from the cloud. You hold no umbrella because crying is not allowed. December 22, 2015 From Contest: Rain Hosted by : Silent One Judged 12/23/15 second place
