Oh Rain


Sitting in the rain

Please god let me forget this pain

Wash away the blood and regret

From my tangled hair and heart of glass

Please go wash away the sting of regret

The memories I’ve tried so hard to repress

Wash them all away and let me drown in the rain

To leave behind this eternal burning pain

Wash away the doubt and the hate

Please oh please give me a clean slate

I know I’ve done wrong

But I swear to you I never meant any harm

Please I’m begging you to give me a new beginning

A fresh start where I can value the world as a piece of art

Oh rain wash away the black stains covering my heart

Wash away the mask of happiness

And let me show my pain

Oh rain shield me from the worlds twisted games

Oh rain dropp upon my Face show the world the damaged and cracked face

Rain reveal me for what I am just a simple and broken woman

Oh rain let me sit here until my old self drowns

Oh rain don’t let me down

Give me all that you have to give

Please lend me the strength to live

Oh rain please wash away this remorse

And rain re open my closed doors

Rain seep in to my skin and force me to get up and live

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
