Raining Blood


Don’t you wish the rain to wash away all fears
To blend with and dismiss all the tears

You wish the rain to calm all rage
To let you out of the emotional cage

You want peace to reign
Let all other thoughts fall away like rain

But when the rain doesn’t take all away
You wish the rain to not stay

When the rain is blood
It comes over you like a sudden flood

Fears come out to taught you
Tears come and attack too

Rage set free
Cage wont let you be

Reigning peace nonexistent
Rain now keeps happy thoughts distant

All things turn to blood red ash
Life no longer wearing a golden crown and sash


Means to me:
Well to me it means that the way the world seems can change because of one little thing.
In this case blood instead of rain falls from the sky.
