I feel sad today

Its one of those cold mornings

Walking back home in shorts

Because yesterday had tricked me into thinking everything was fine

How did the clouds move in so fast?

Where did this rain come from?

I plug in my headphones for comfort

But every song is sad and I donít know why I want to cry

He sang, ďThe things I've become, that something is missing
Maybe I... But what do I knowĒ

I feel every word as my own

Maybe itís the thought of being on my own and growing old

Iím still so confused how clouds could come in that fastÖ

I swear that yesterday was Sunny and mid 80ís

My biggest concern was which pair of sandals I wanted to wear

Now I feel like it could rain forever

Iím sad and I want to cry

Why do tears remind me of the rain?

Dripping sadness and these words arenít comfort;

Just reminders for a future self to know that at one point

I felt like just caving in, giving up, and letting pain win

Iíve always promised myself I wonít do it; and I probably wonít

But right now its just easier and I just so confused

Isnít there some kind of water cycle that prevents instant cloud formation?

Like seriously, you'd think that if itís clear and sunny that thereís no way

A thunderstorm could blindside you in the matter of hours


I understand life has its cloudy days but they shouldnít happen like this

I just want to be happy again and I hope that the clouds part to a kiss from your lips

I love this.It describes those moments we're sad and we can't explain why, it doesn't make sense because we felt great yesterday,we don't understand and you can't really  put it into words,but you did and you did a beautiful job.

This is not only well written but also thought provoking. I also see rain as tears. Once or twice, though, they were tears of joy, when from no where they appeared on a warm sunny day from under a rainbow. The wonderful aspect of life are the unexpected twist and turns. We never know what is around the corner or what tomorrow will hold. It is much easier to go with the flow, taking the bad with the good. Everything is only temporary !

Sounds like Montana weather. On the serious side...

Feelings are funny things. One second you can be bubbly and happy as all get out, and a person can say one thing, or the tiniest thing can happen, and it will bring you down so fast. I suppose the only comfort in that is that sometimes something can change quickly and bring you right back up again.


I know the feeling!!

It was an excellent poem. Well done!!

Sadness can come with swift wings Shoaib. Sometimes, there isn't a reason...and you may think that foolish of me to say but its true. Often, we can react to nature, the pressure lows, the pull of the tides, and yes, most definitely, the rain. I too feel that sense of melancholy at times when it rains, especially if something is tugging at my heart. I've written rain as tears as well, what poet hasn't, right? *smiles* At the end of this poem, I found something concrete. There is a reason for this mood of yours. The second half of the last line says it all and quite beautifully too. I would like to see the conjunction removed and have it stand on its own.


Wonderful expression my friend. I offer you a hug of friendship so you know you are understood and not alone in your emotional upset. Be well dear one.
