It's Raining

By Lady Grinning Soul

It's raining worthlessness

Pounding hard

upon a window sill.

Rusted windows
it's raining worthlessness
out on every
street corner.

No one should have to


it out to one as
big eyed as you.

You just decide to

your eyes to the world
to the window sill
that pounds like a broken heart
that throbs to be heard
throbs to live.

Breathe it in
like smoke from a pile of burning

You still don't realize
your eyes are closed.

It's raining


as black as the crap
you hack up.

black, grey, and travel worn.

Felt tip markers
have said more
then what you ever could

about the dull, bland surroundings
that surround you
and the filth that pollutes you
every single day.

Days will come
days will go by.

Rememberance comes and goes.

(If I were to
your shoulder
with my barren

black heart
I have a feeling you would feel nothing.)

Black was
the colour of my heart.

the colour of my veins.

I stand alone
in some dark and musty cellar
staring blankly at a wall


searching for a way out of here.



Rememberance comes and goes.

It's here one day
one minute
one nanosecond
and the next
it vanishes without a trace.

I will be fore-gotten

lost among the books
on a dusty bookshelf
that no one looks at anymore
that no one breathes on anymore.

They stopped
caring long

The world stopped caring.

I will perish
when what we
as time

when we learn how to


that too.

I will burn to release myself.

in a pile of books
in an age where few can read.

Decaying books
rotted by pollution.

A modern middle age.

Rememberance will come and go
and when it does

I want to vanish with the rain.

    "and when it does I want to vanish with the rain." This snapped the whole piece back into such sharp focus and brought everything to its perfect conclusion. Excellent work.

    Yes the rain, oh the rain...I am not a fan of the rain...this reminds me of my day today, as I am looking out the window at rain. I am just hearing it tap my window almost laughing at me as I can't step outside. This is stunning. Thank you.

  • A former member wrote: you stole the breath from my lungs and the beats from my heart with the tone of this one, soooo very like pouring rain, the helpless hopelessness you portray...I want to cover myself in camoflauge and bandaids, so that I might disappear as well. ~*Beth*~

    "Call it education, all them books I didn't read. they just sat there on the shelf looking much smarter than me!" Just reminded me of that. Had a feeling of hopelessness, I just can't shake off since finishing this. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
