Let it Rain!

February 16, 2008
By Amanda Perlmutter, Flushing, NY

Figments of the mind
Lost in time
You claimed to be forever there
To let me live without a care
Each time you lie
Thinking of another alibi
You leave us here to cry
The love to die
So why is this question evermore
You have not seen what I have in store
They say that blood is thicker than water,
But blood isn’t there for you to drink
So its water, that is always there
I think
Let it pour
Let the love of others reign
They shall take away the pain
That u have scarred upon my name
I want to feel the rain
Just let me feel the rain. . . .
