Purple Rain (Part I Of The True Colors Trilogy) - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

Mother Nature is bleeding
Tear-drops of rain
She's bleeding down;
Body fluid from the veins.

Tear-drops they fall
And, I see purple rain.
The earth, she cries
She withers from pain.

I feel her vibration
Her agony; the same
I feel the despair
As I dance in the purple rain

Until, with her, I die
Ignored, by the masses
Trampled, and shamed
As life—it passes.


Just like the earth;
I'm sick of this game!
The world, and the Mother—
No, they are not the same.

Life is evil,
And, disastrous and insane
Nothing like her
With her beauty, and reign—

She cries from the destruction,
She withers when tamed
Her breath is the wind,
And, her teardrops; purple rain.

My eyes become blurred,
My vision, it leaves me
The earth is so different
Unlike the rest, she doesn't deceive me.

Her beauty is unadulterated,
She is striking and real
She— isn't twisted.
She can cry, and she can feel.

Different from it all,
This plague, or this curse.
That leaves me, left craving
To rot in a hearse.

No, the earth could never
Be the same.
Which is why I will always
Dance, in purple rain…
