Archive for rain

   Too loud here –
   Too crowded
     and just too damn plain

   Too cloudless –
   Too starless
     and hopelessly lame

   Too empty –
   Too lonely
     and oddly insane

   Too something
   Too nothing
     and too filled with rain…

Without you.


In The Closet

Posted in Poetry, Ramblings with tags , , , on 2010/01/25 by R L Burns

i hid in the closet

again, today…

i don’t know why

i really can’t say

what pulled me back in

to the dark and the pain

i shook and i cried

i begged – all in vain

no answer came to me

no relief from the strain

no love, no light, only dark pouring rain.


is it safe to come out now?
