The Rain

by Stephanie Ambrose

Vulnerable and alone I sit 
And wait As I Contemplate 
my next move win or lose
its whatever I choose

I think bout my new friend and his ability to soothe 
I sit at my window pain 
Looking out at the rain 

Rain drops dripping
I feel my mind slipping

Drip drip
My hearts rips in two 
as I figure out what to do

Drips turn to thunder 
Making my mind wonder 

Thunder then lightning 
This all seems so frightening 

The rain starts to pour 
as I try to ignore 
my feelings

Thoughts of my friend reel me in 
I feel compelled to 

I want him bad 
but he steadily 
Pushes me away 
Tells me to go away 

Giving me a chance to break free
another chance to stay in mediocrity

I tell him no tell him I won't go 
He knows it's wrong
Yet his feeling 4 me are strong 

So he lets me stay 
for one more day 
Rain drops dripping 
Pain starts slipping 
Forgetting all of our pain
As we play in the Rain 

We relieve stress 

We become one

The sun 

never appears

and the rain falls hiding our tears...
