the world in grey


the world in grey

opened my eyes and saw the world in grey
it seems the sky opened up today
the rains fell down and drenched my face
and filled my heart with much disdain

      i dont look forward to the day today
      i really wish the grey would go away
      at least for now its here to stay
      but i really wish the grey would go away

closed my eyes and saw the world at play
in my mind the sun shines today
beaming down it warms my face
and takes me to a better place

      not dealing well with the day today
      wishing for the grey to go away
      i want the sunshine here to stay
      but all i see is this dreadful grey

opened my eyes and saw the world in grey
across the sky the colors fade
my tearful sighs drenched in pain
my skin awash from falling rain

      with open eyes i face the day
      and try to stare past the growing grey
      tomorrow will be a better day
      if the the grey of today just goes away

Well, Dano, I'm not laughing. I've never been depressed and hope to God I never have to experience it. I do get down though and cynical too. I like the cynical part, the part that sees this world for what it really is. I can't imagine what my life would be like now if God hadn't pulled me out by my bootstraps. Check out my poen "Without Your Love". I'm glad you have poetry as an outlet; it does help.



this was not meant to make you laugh... the world appears without color for me sometimes and the grey overwhelmes everything else... i just write what i see and how i feel

I love the kind of writes that can be pulled apart and read in different layers. Your indentions of every other stanza indicate to me that this was done be design and not coincidence, and it's brilliant! The world may be grey today... but we always have tomorrow to look forward to. Let the rains fall, we can always stay in ;) ♥



thanks hon

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
