Reality of the Rain

I’m a mess today.
Sort of like every other day
But different
Because today,
I’m not hiding it

Today’s one of those days
Where you wear baggy clothes
And you don’t really care about your appearance
That’s what rainy days, like today, do to you

Light, slow, rain
White fog covering what seems to be the entire world
Dark clouds overhead
All things that make you feel like not getting out of bed.

I can’t think straight
Many thoughts rush through my head
Stress, which is becoming way to overwhelming
To many things to think about

All I want to do, is close my eyes
And just sleep
Putting my mess away for at least a few hours
So maybe,
I don’t have to face the reality of the rain.

I love the realistic aspect of this poem. Many author's thoughts are hidden behind metaphors and similes, but the ideas you've communicated are clear and straightforward with a pleasant tone of voice. Great job.

Also, I'm glad you didn't select a picture to go with this...I think that it's just right without one.
