It's raining again on me

It's raining again on me, from a cloud that apparently only I can see
The cloud it follows me wherever I go, why it does this I just do not know
The rain falls heavy, sometimes it falls slight, it really don't matter, it blocks out the light
It comes without warning and I just can't see, why is it only raining on me?

It's raining again today, when it will stop I just couldn't say
It's relentless and stormy on some of these days, oft-times it just wants to get in my way
I really just wish it would go away, but like a bad odour it just seems to stay
No rhyme and no reason, no explanation why, it just keeps raining from an invisible sky

Today the cloud it went away, came back with reinforcements and then said "Hey!"
I try to ignore it, I try to implore it, then I ask the cloud "Why?" while staring inanely up at the sky
The cloud smiles while it tells me this, "There is no real answer, it is what it is.
Don't worry, don't fret, I'll soon leave you be." and yet it still rains down continuously on me

The days drag by but the cloud remains, just like a movie that's stuck on one single frame
Nothing works and nothing seems to help, I'm a recluse in the dark in my own private hell
I know it will leave of its' own someday, but when that will be I just cannot say
Until that day comes I can barely see, why is it always raining down on me?

The rain is uncaring, deaf dumb and blind, most days it feels like it's mean and unkind
If I could grab the cloud I'd strangle it to death, unfortunately the cloud does not need breath
For now I just try to make the best I can, as a weak and weary beaten-down man
Tomorrow might signal the end of the cloud, but perhaps I should not voice my hopes aloud

It's just water from the sky.
Revel in it.
It is life.

It is supposed to rain tomorrow and the next day but the temperature is predicted to go from freezing to a comfortable mid-60's.

All the ice and snow will melt away.

Wowzer! Humble thanks for the support and praise my friends. Much appreciated.

And skunkape23, thank you for the song, I hadn't heard that one. Very fitting and Chris was a great artist, added to my playlist.

I am telling you that you will get through this. You are stronger than you think. But i wish, when you are feeling weak and want to write, that you continue this. Threads telling you about how you are feeling.

I wanted to let you know that I used to feel like a dark cloud hung over me all the time. I didn’t understand. So I wrote some dark poetry and seriously wanted death. That’s not in my book of life though. My reality did shift and I no longer have that cloud hanging over me. I did enjoy reading what you wrote and it reminded me of me in the past. But I now realize I have to live in this present moment only, it’s my gift.

Ps. I love your Pink Floyd pic. I just bought that record from an antique store today

Hey Nat ! Long time ... you sound well and happy !

Just an fyi ... Light's avatar is light refracting through a prism.

Floyds Dark Side of the moon is a representation of that showing the spectral colours.

Shine on you crazy diamond. Lol 👋😎

I did not know that! I saw the image and thought of Pink Floyd. Thanks for the info!

That is all.
