Rain.

What is Rain?

 

Staring in the accursed mirror

Standing in the Rain

She considers drawing nearer

She is staring at her pain

Searching for a view clearer

Seeing herself in Rain

Screaming and looking queerer

Seething at the shattered pain

Sighing as the shards cut her hand singing to the hearer

Singing like windchimes with the Rain

 

Rain

What is Rain?

 

Beauty drizzling upon the floor

Balance of music and gift from on high

Breath of new air at its core

Becoming something new after descent from the sky

Beckoning joy and thought and her rushing from the door

Beholding a sight to make her feel she can fly

Beside the puddle a fallen leaf washes ashore

Befriending a drizzle to make her again try

Because of the rain that leaf could restore

Being on land the leaf could now dry

Before the ripple push the stranded leaf poor

Belief in small hopefully beauty perhaps to little sorrow goodbye

 

Rain.

What is it?


The author's comments:

I far more identify with the second one. And even though poetry is difficult to write I enjoyed it. iI was writing poetry that i mostly understood and i wasn't in a weird dark place filled with way to much depression.

the redemptive feeling stuff i didn't get. rain doesn't cheer me up bc I'm not in a bad place to begin with. trying again is a preposterous idea to me (no offense if this is you, I'm just typing my confused mind), because i dont give up in the first place. mostly because i generally love school.

And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"
"I just switched 50 things to anonymus and it doesnt even make a diff- why was i writing this again? where was i? hm.... oh well."

im not entirly sure and i cant ask the writer(something or someone else used my hands... every time i write poetry my words are not my own. i swear I'm not as depressed as the author is... but it being inside me maybe i am and i just dont know it.)

arent both of those kinda depressing? or at least not very happy. is it the same persons reflection going in and out of whatever problem is happening? and is the mirror(and first rain) literal or hypothetical?
