I wish the rain would comfort me each time I shed a tear,
if this were so, we’d all be drowned within the year.
There is no way to hold them back, the fear and pain push through,
the emotions cloud my thoughts, the tears obscure my view.
For a moment I catch the sunshine, it plays upon the wall,
A smile flickers for an instant, the joy before the fall.
I feel your presence around me, I know you’re always there
It doesn’t quell the loneliness, it’s more than just unfair.
I started writing this poem months ago when I asked some friends for a word to write about, I had the first line and it was left that way for weeks. I find it easier to to put pen to paper, poetry wise, when I’m feeling down. I suppose that’s the norm for a lot of people when it comes to creating things. For instance with some paintings you can see the pain and sadness in them. When I read some of my poetry back to myself I just wonder what on earth was going on in my head to be that dark and miserable. It’s been my release for so many feelings and although it might not be Keats it is Kate’s (that’s me) and that’s just as amazing 😉
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
