Sometimes you just want to stand in the rain

Sometimes you just need to stand in the rain

It doesn’t matter that you don’t have a raincoat

It doesn’t matter that your glasses catch droplets of rain

Something tells you to stand still,

Ignore your knee jerk reaction to pull your hood up

Hug your jacket close

You just open your arms

Turn your face to the sky

And stand



Leave Me to my Misery

Leave me to my misery

The darkest part of me cries

But why be miserable

When all that can change

Is how I choose to survive?

Leave me to my misery

Something within me cries

But misery I’ve done,

And serve me well it did not,

So why would I allow it to thrive?

Leave me to my misery

The faintest part of me cries

I wrap it in my arms

And hold it to my breast

Wiping all of the tears dry.
