Acid Rain

Tears fall down like acid rain on sun dried cheeks

No longer burning with passion

Once beautiful memories now are each

No more than a lost reaction

 

And as they fall these tears erode the last of my conviction

They blaze a trail along the road of my heart’s affliction

 

Discontent to pass me by from the sky it flows

(acid rain) Acid rain (acid rain)

It leaves me high and dry, and as I cry it deals its heavy blows

(acid rain) Acid rain (acid rain)

 

The space by my side used to be taken

But these days I keep no company

Since the day you left my life’s been vacant

Like my heart and soul – incomplete

 

And as I walk these steps erode the path of certainty

They blaze a trail along the road I wander aimlessly

 

Discontent to pass me by it just keeps pouring down

(acid rain) Acid rain (acid rain)

It leaves me high and dry, and as I cry it I feel like I could drown

(acid rain) Acid rain (acid rain)

 

Years pass by like stale air in the cold night breeze

No longer filled with emotion

It’s becoming so hard now even to breathe

Consumed by my own devotion

 

And as they fall these tears erode the last of my conviction

They blaze a trail along the road of my heart’s affliction

 

Discontent to pass me by time and time again

(acid rain) Acid rain (acid rain)

It leaves me high and dry, but still I try to move on from this pain

(acid rain) Acid rain (acid rain)

    A painfully excellent expression of the pain, SabreLi. You really do know how to show emotions through your words. Nice work.

      Thanks so much 😀 - I don't normally go for the repetition (except in format) but I like how this one turned out. I may try something similar again soon xx

        Sadness in this writer. Yet a wonderfully expensive and powerful write

        • SabreLi

          Thanks Tony! Yes this one has alot of sadness in it, sometimes abandonment leaves more sadness than bereavement through loss as there is rarely any closure xx

              Powerful and also seductive as the reader is anxious for the next line.

                Thank you! Pain always has us anxious for the next line; wishing for the pain to be over xx

                  I am very familiar with pain. Sending positive and uplifting thoughts.

                  Yes I too think it
                  sounds like a song
                  I love it, so bloody good.
                  Well done !!!!

                  • SabreLi

                    Thanks so much! I am really happy that the tune somewhat shone through since I sometimes find it difficult to bring the rhythm into the writing. Made up with the feedback 😀 xx

                    • P.H.Rose

                      It deserves every
                      Word....
