It’s Raining in My Soul, A Poem


only sometimes
it feels like it is raining
in my soul
and my heart
feels hollow
the dull knock
of recognition
can you hear
the sound?
I feel
but I know
this is not the end
of everything
nor is it the beginning
it is merely a stop
along the road
a chance to cry
a chance to wonder why
and a chance to try
No, I’m not in charge
of my emotions
I am merely a vessel
a breath of life
quivering in the darkness
a reaching towards a goal
and I know
yes, I know
that we all
need rain
to grow.

  1. the last line’s just perfect for this poem Sum and yes I feel like this often,I find myself wondering about the sanity of those who don’t have moments like these,who surround themselves with noise and people and never really meet these moments where they meet themselves…beautiful write my dearest,love and hugs
