    The sudden distant cry…
    I wonder why…
    I hear my voice
    Without a choice….
    Calling your name.
    Can I withstand the Rain.

    In time…
    I wonder if you’ll be all mine.
    For each other we shall take care…
    And together we shall share…
    Our love.
    But can I withstand the rain.

    I sit on curb…
    Silence…
    With no words…
    Waiting….
    Wanting you to come and get me.
    But you are nowhere to be found.
    You left me lost….
    Downtown.
    I’m trying to withstand the rain.

    When you leave me at home alone…
    And for hours you are gone.
    No info as of where…
    As if I didn’t care.
    My heart still aches…
    And I cry out…
    Begging you to take it away.
    I want to withstand the rain.

    Our communication is so good…
    And well, as one we are understood.
    We love each other unconditionally.
    We stimulate each other mentally…
    I would detest another who would hurt your heart.
    And I would die if we were to ever be torn apart.
    But can I withstand the rain.

    Can I say yes when I want to say no?
    Can I say stay when I want you to go?
    Will you understand when I beg you not leave?
    Will you always in me believe?
    That I will be true…
    Always love you.
    And for better or worst.
    Take care of you.

    Withstand the Rain.

    things that make you go hmm...

    i feel this.
    when you want him to go, don't tell him to stay, and when you mean no, let that be known cuz honesty ain't really no bad thing. you feel what you feel and it's okay because you own and control it. don't ever say yes when you mean no cuz then you start resenting him, yourself, the institution... feel me?

    True...

    Now ain't that truth!! I totally agree. But sometimes confusion crowds the brain...its like you want him to stay but you need to tell him to go...you want to say yes but you need to tell him no...in regards to what the outcome may be ...which still won't be beneficial to you in the end

    ***entering from the garden holding an umbrella***

    "within the rain you sit and
    i begin to think how can he
    offer his heart, his mind, his
    life through time to one who
    deserves all that he can give
    in the midst of the storm..."

    your pen speaks volumes of life lessons and life learning through the rains sent forth. i applaud your skill and i sit back watching how you provide an avenue for the silent to speak...

    ***closing my umbrella as i return to the garden of serentiy***

    Love is ironic...

    ...in that we are, always, strong enough to hold the weight of its, inevitable, pains on our shoulders, yet we are not strong enough to speak out when faced with these pains. An admirable piece, scribe. *Undoubtedly, feelin' this*
