Rain Of Thunder

I took the gift of light for granted-
Assuming I would always see
But when my world darkened-
My fears took the best of me

And I would give anything
Just to see a spark or a glow
But my faith was also fading
Withering away like my hope
The only sight I had
Was beyond the walls in my mind

But they were just figments from the past
A false savior that I could only hide behind

The shadows were becoming my mask
It was shielding me from living my life

The skies rumbled ominously / Like cries echoing sorrowfully
I felt rain falling endlessly / Like infinite liquid apologies

Reality shed the blackness / The roars fiercely pierced
My eyes ignited the darkness / The heavens suddenly burst

What once was lost
Can also be found

For effects without a cause
Nothing would ever be returned

Our paths will once again cross
For destiny is bound
The lowest of the low-
I have seen
Through the darkest shadows-
The light intervenes

Revealing what I mournfully missed
A symphony of beams exiled from grace
The renewed colors and the abyss kissed
As I heard the thunders calling my name
Only those who experience darkness
Can see when the light is the brightest

Rain Of Color
Rain Of Color

All of the struggles I had to endure
I always desperately held on
It was a day after day ritual
Learning to stay strong

Different advice from the wise
I had to fuse it all together
And make sense of every voice
I couldn't allow my hope to wither
Believe in the soul
Embrace the heart
It's what makes you whole
It defines who you really are

Envision the dreams
As if they're real
Remember where you've been
Know that every wound will heal

Every scar tells a story / Every step is towards glory
There's always a chance to triumph / There's always a time for resonance

We always pick ourselves back up / There's no su

What an amazing piece! It took me reading through it two or three times to get used to the flow, but once I 'got it', it really hit me just how well this style worked for you!

Never seen a poem in this sort of form before but each unique separation made me really sit up and take notice to what had been written. Very well done!

I felt the emotions here easily; beautiful! I am impressed! You conveyed your perspective here so well!

I loved how you used the rain and thunder to help convey each point. It made this piece that much more real.

Overall, I loved your technique and the imagery you portrayed (beautiful photo, by the way :) ). 10/10!

Until we meet again...

what once was lost can also be found... wonderful words for any who cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel (Luke 15:24)

Wow, this poem is really well excited. I quite enjoyed the flow. The symbolism is quite effective, each metaphor was different from the next, but still related as a whole.

Great work!

Wow. It is a stunning beautifully creative piece that is powerful and warm and heartfelt. The photo plus the written piece combined are hope with reality. I know someday that my path will cross another and I also know what I have lost will be found again in time. And like lighting I cannot "make" it happen..
