There are teardrops falling from the sky
Gray with sadness and regret
When teardrops fall, my heart fills with pain
And then rain falls from my eyes

The silent water stains my skin with rain
As my heart bleeds painlessly
With teardrops falling from the clouds
They share there sadness with me

The warm rain from my eyes
Blends with cold tears of clouds
The angry howling of the wind
Lightning tries to strike me down

The trees groaning in distress
As the wind moans in pain
The clouds are crying for them both
As the rain falls from my eyes

I sing with the wind
And I feel the bitter hate
Of the earth who gave us life
And may take it back again

The earth shows sadness with its tears
And its pain in the wind
I hear them both and I feel helpless
What can one do by themselves?

I liked the idea for this poem.  I'm confused to as what exactly it's about.  I saw what you said in youre little quote thing, but does that mean it's meant to be something different to everyone?  If that's the case then....that's actually pretty cool!  Keep it up :)

wow! this was really great. Just one teeny tiny thing, in the 8th line, it is 'their', not 'there'. A common mistake but otherwise beautifully written. The switcheroo of 'rain' and 'tears' added a special and amazing effect. Nice job!
