Rain In My Mind

Seems my brain collides

With everybody’s rain

And it pours

                        And it pours

                                                   God it pours

How can I soak up the excess?

Clean out the chaos?

                            I’m in a nightmare

                                                      Wake up

                                                                 Wake up

My life is written everywhere

                                                     In bits and pieces 

                                                                          Of the sky

                                                                                           I live

                                                                                                    I die

I give my best 

But it’s never good

                                     Good

                                             Good

                                                      Enough

The walls are tight

They punch me

                                      In

                                              The

                                                          Chest

Knock out my breath

 I want out of this mess

                                   Out to live

                                                      Live

                                                              Live

                                                                     My life 

You screwed me

Incessantly

                     And he did

                                        And he did

                                                              And he did

 

My thoughts come crashing

                                                Crashing

                                                          Crashing 

                                                                       From

                                                                                 The

                                                                                         Sky

I’m killing you 

Out of my mind

                                   Out

                                               Of

                                                        My

                                                                 Mind

My brain collides with everybody’s rain

And nobody sees my pain

                                                         In

                                                                   The

                                                                           Rain

                                                                                        In

                                                                                               My

                                                                                                      Mind

About sharonsharinginsights

Namaste'! I write poetry, stories, essays, reviews, editorials, screenplays, lyrics.....you get the idea! I love to write. I graduated from UI&U in Vermont, U.S. with BA in Writing and Literature with a concentration in Women's Studies. I was chosen and interviewed as local artist for my writing on local online college magazine HOWL (circa 2003). My writings have been published in several genres and I have won numerous awards for my poetry. I am desirous of having my own collection of poetry and/or other writings published in my OWN book. I am passionate about women's issues, romance, love and a great number of benevolent causes. I am pretty passionate about almost anything that is NOT mundane or boring. I write from my soul (cliche' I know). Most of my work has been published and/or copyrighted (all either or both). My goal, again, is to publish a book of poetry, short stories, a novel, novellas, another song (collaborating with someone who writes music...hello, out there?)....OK more later, and thank you for checking me out!

    this was painful. you captured the grief of a tormented heart so perfectly. kill and burry the demon that torments you and move on. a person who is causing so much pain is not worth remembering.

      Thanks for your input and liking my poem. I wrote this on the day my daughter was admitted to the hospital and she almost died. I have not been on since. She’s in rehab now and I have not been sleeping and calling every waking moment to try to get her into another program asap. I didn’t even know that she was hooked on pain pills and an alcoholic. I’m in a nightmare. She could die her liver is so messed up. Thanks again for your comments and sorry I will probably not be able to post much in next few days or even weeks, but I’ll try. Love you all!

    You’re a grand poet! Also, I want to thank you for nominating as inspirational A Ghost Town Called Love. Your nomination caused me to write a kind of introduction to the dang thing ~ which is also a “reply” to your dropping by and letting me know. Thank you, Sharon ~ for your cutting poetry and the nomination!
