Storm


One cold evening
It was raining hard
Outside my house
And inside my heart

Lightning and thunder came
An enormous storm was coming
A song of sorrow and fear
A song my heart was humming

How do you end a storm?
When its source is the sky
How do you end the pain?
When all you can do is die

Heavy rains come and go
But oh, how I wonder
How long the rains would fall
How long shall I ponder

Could the rains actually stop?
Will it continue pouring?
Will I be able to heal?
The pain that I’m bearing

They say the sun’ll come out tomorrow
But I wonder if it won’t evaporate water
And create humongous storms again
That’ll conceal all the love and laughter

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
