The Rain - Poem by Rudy Puentes

The rain is beating down
Upon the glass of my window
It reminds me of the past
Something that turned my heart cold

You wanna know
That’s just fine
I will tell you
So then you’ll see why I no longer shine

Her name was Ashley
And I thought she was the one
But I was wrong
And I was left without a sun

She broke my heart
In so many ways
I don’t know if I’ll ever be the same
All I can do now is just pray

She played so many games
She thought she was in control
But she got knocked down
And now has to pay the toll

She uses her boyfriend
To try and make me jealous
But what she does not know
Is I don’t get envious

Her boyfriend seems cool
Like he’s a real nice guy
The only thing is
That’s all just a disguise

He treats her like crap
And she just takes it in
I don’t know what’s wrong with her
She has ceased to grin

She has Dyslexia
And she’s shy about this
But he makes fun of her
And treats her like a lil kid

She use to be ranked
Number 42 in the state for basketball
He started telling her she was no good
So she gave up and lost it all

She dropped out of college
She’s given up on herself
She could have had it all
But she gave up on her wealth

She use to have these dreams
About being a star
But because of her boyfriend
She now thinks it’s too far

He is slowly killing her
He is a real jerk
But she won’t leave him
Because he don’t make her work

This guy has money
And he promises to take care of her
But all he really wants to do is
Just control her

She knows I love her
With all my heart and soul
And she knows
That I can’t let her go

She is in fear
Of losing our friendship
Even though it will only improve
Our relationship

With all the love I have
I would not dare hurt her
She means too much to me
And this I know for sure

So she has sealed her fate
I have given up
She had her chance
But enough is enough

We are just friends
And that is where it will stay
From now until forever
No matter how hard it rains
