Poem Of You - Poem by Lee Degnan

I sit and listen to
the pouring rain
as it patters and taps
on my windowpane,
my thoughts escape
me as they do
But no matter what
they always turn to you

As if I need constant
reminder more
My brain tricks me
to settle the score
Indeed it's you, my
secret addiction,
imprisoning me with
this obscene infliction

So I listen to the
rain a little more
to try and think of no
one I adore
But even then they
whispered your name too
As if my mind needed to...
I thought of you.

    I'm no expert either, but this poem could be 'set out' a little different, to help it flow in the mind of the reader, as it is read, (i hope you know what i mean) but apart from that my friend, it reads really well, I mean no disrespect as I enjoyed it alot. well done..and keep writing.
