    I think the rain is calling murder
    I hear it beating against the window pane of my heart
    Trying its damdest to seep through
    My heart is broken
    And leaking tears of pain
    Its crying, it’s bleeding
    Yea though I walk through the valley
    Of the shadow of death
    I fear not the enemy of my heart
    Everyday I am a heartbeat away from death
    Yet I live to see the sun shinning another day
    I hear the rain
    And its calling murder
    Death
    Destruction
    Heartbreak
    Soul shattering rain drops
    Fall to the hardened cracked surface
    Seeping
    Leaking
    Crying
    penetrating
    But yea
    Though I walk
    Through the valley if the shadow of death
    I fear no evil
    For God is with me
    In me
    He walks by my side
    Through the darkest of days
    I hear the rain
    And its calling murder
    Death
    Destruction
    Heartbreak
    Days are dark
    Nights are bright
    Everything that was
    Is no more
    Everything I had
    I have no more
    Everything I want
    I want no more
    Everything I hope………..
    I think the rain is calling murder

    it was dark, and filled with pain, and if your words can make me feel that, than you did your job as a poet. i enjoyed.

    Let no man put asunder

    God will take care of you. I'm glad you expressed these feelings with pen and paper, instead of taking it out on yourself. Writing is very therapeutic.
