Here Comes The Rain

Here Comes The Rain

Here comes the rain,

Falling on my head,

Burning holes into the

Essence of my life.

Have you seen the sky,

Draining of all color,

Thoughts bleeding grey?

Could you tell that the moisture in the air
Tasted of rust?
Was the sun blocked off

By all the clouds that drenched the ash-colored sky?

Did the words escape your mouth,

The ones that bring worry and fear and pain,

Yet they prepare you for the storm?

The words are bleak and cold:

Here comes the rain.

very good poem, I enjoyed every line, I love the rain as much as I love the night :) so the images you have in this poem, really had an impact on me, and I like how in the end, the rain seems more of a metaphor for great sadness and depression, great poem :)

I like how you air able to use simple descriptions to deliver such an image and message. You can go somewhere with this and I hope you stick with it. Very nice job and the simplicity behind it has talent. Awsome job......

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
