Gentle rain, quiet rain

Gentle rain, quiet rain.

Slowly coming down.

Wait for me,

Be with me,

Only to have my crown.

On this pedestal I raise myself,

Only to be looked won upon.

Up and up I try to climb

But I never seem to catch up.

Security,

Sanctity.

That is what my hand is holding.

Only with this comfort will I be

A person who sees flaw in all.

Different people,

Different look.

I care not for you at all.

Expression,

Voice.

I will speak my mind.

Closed minded,

Hidden.

Scared to show a warm hand.

A care for you I will not show

Only because I think you're ugly.

Shut in,

Cold hearted.

Never to be truly seen.

Only to be seen by certain as strong willed.

Truly to strong but cold,

A corpse inside

Slowly decaying from the blue lights.

One place,

Over priced.

The one place that is solely manipulative.

Sunny, bright, warm does it portray.

Mirror image,

Shadow figure.

Hiding behind rash thoughts.

Voicing harsh judgments.

Demonstrating solace to make a more discomforting environment.

That is what lies with the scattered gladiolus…

Slowly decaying into the ground…

Only to be washed away by the gentle, quiet rain.
