Silver raindrops

by C Cattaway   Apr 23, 2006


The rain is falling down on me
But only silver raindrops fall.
I could've given everything.
Instead, you took it all.

I leave my curtains closed, so tight,
And leave the world outside.
But still the raindrops sit upon
my shoulder, where I hide.

Outside my door, the world moves on,
Though I am left behind.
I search for you to hold my hand.
It's you I cannot find.

These silver raindrops litter down.
I look, to see from where.
The linings on the clouds have gone,
And left the thunder there.

We listened to the song a while.
You said you could fix me.
But I have sought, to no avail,
And waited patiently.

Still silver raindrops fall upon
The world I could have had.
And tears are streaming down my face.
Were you meant to make me sad?

I'd fight for you. I've lied for you.
Still silver raindrops come.
The lining fell for even clouds
Know, You're the only one.

I've killed for you, I'd die for you.
And pain is all I get.
I'll cry within the silver rain.
One day, I might forget. xx

    perfect. the whole poem is, but this is above that.

    We listened to the song a while.
    You said you could fix me.
    But I have sought, to no avail,
    And waited patiently.

    as broken as we'll ever be, we still hope there's someone to fix us.
    I loved this C. It was perfect, and instant favorite

    The flow of this piece is perfect, and the atmosphere is greatly created. The wording is good, I like the words usage in this poem a lot. My favorite stanza is:
    -Still silver raindrops fall upon
    The world I could have had.
    And tears are streaming down my face.
    Were you meant to make me sad?-

    Keep up, 5/5 from me
