#WednesdayVerses : Of wind and the rain

rain

Dark clouds gather in the sky,
Like all the worries that cloud my mind.
To hold myself together I try,
While the trees sway to the gusts of the wind.

 

I see a flash of lightening,
The rumble of the thunder.
But what seems more frightening,
Are my fears that pull me asunder.

>

Like the drops of rain that began to fall,
Tears trickle down from my eyes.
I felt like letting out all,
The pain, the lies and the many failed tries.

 

A breath of freshness brings the rain,
To the land that was parched dry.
The tears help me let go of my pain,
Reminding me I should always give life another try.

    Firstly how do you rhyme like that ?
    I wish I knew how to spin my words like a pro into verses! As always loved it 🙂

  2. They say it is easier to cry in the rain, no one will notice it. But what matters is braving it and looking at life more clearly.

    Loved your verse. Linked mine as well.

    Beautiful lines, Reema. Nothing a like a good cry to let that pain out, isn’t it?

  4. Vinay Leo R. says:

    Yes. The rain is healing in a way. Either we feel joyous seeing it, or we pour out our sorrows in tears and then feel less burdened. 🙂 Loved the verse.
