Rain - Poem by shameka jones

rain, rain, rain heal my heart that is broken apart
rain, rain, rain up above from the skies
rain, rain, rain pour here and clean my soul
rain, rain, rain there will be rain here, there will be rain there
rain, rain, rain wash away my pain
rain, rain, rain wash away my debts to pay
rain, rain, rain so tired i felt wash away my guilt
rain, rain i will do anything for you to cover my tears of shame

    I love repetition of words in poetry. Its one of the things that makes poetry.
    I thought you covered every base you needed to and that kept it short enough
    to be a worthwhile read.

    I think that was an interesting and touching piece. I remember how I felt when I was upset and how I loved to be just in the rain when I cried, allowing it to blend into my tears and calm my body and soul. Such a wonderful piece once more. Excellent job. (Report) Reply
