Evaporated Tears

by *Charisma*   Dec 31, 2006

I wonder if the rain is just evaporated tears.
It would explain why so many fall from the sky.
Maybe it's the surmounting of our fears,
Pouring down upon us when we most need to cry.

It sprinkles on days when I'm missing you.
Falls steadily on days I'm depressed.
Showers because I don't think I'll pull through,
And merely drizzles out on the rest.

But when it thunders my heart is gone.
And the rain comes down in thick sheets.
I'm in the place where I can't move on.
Hanging on to a thread of your memory.

The lightning flashes across my eyes.
My heart shakes as the ground does too.
It won't fizzle out for days when I cry.
Thunderstorms are the closest I get to you.

    Aweh ! Love this. Brought tears to my eyes `cuz it made me think of my ex and how we have this whole rain thing, had anyways. But you wrote this so flawlessly, once again...but I`ve come to expect nothing less from your poetry though. Great job.

    Wow. This was beautiful. The words, the meaning, the feeling. I loved how I could picture the lightening and the rain, and how I could hear the thunder.

    5/5. I really liked this poem also but it isn't your best one though. I think you could twist it a little better to make it sound better. But other then that I give you a 5/5.
