(2008) Rain - Poem by Deana Rode

I need to break free of this Chaos
that keeps trying to drown me alive
with sharpened raindrops, slicing my skin
leaving me bleeding into a moonless night

I've made it past the fire
managed to withstand the ice
but who can escape a tsunami
when you never know the day it will hit..

Rain is coming down now
after a moment of blissful sunshine
will I manage to keep from melting away
or will this storm be the one to finally take me under?

I need shelter from the acidic tears
being shed by my diseased mind
sped up by the actions of a heartless, vain man
whose love and acceptance I've desperately tried to obtain

Grab me and hold me beneath you
protect me from this new onslaught for my soul
maybe together we can fight this battle
and stand Victors of the war

And then it will just be you and me
with the lakes and rivers and streams
filled with the glorious sun
the rains of my past finally gone forever.

Help me achieve my dream...
