Poetry By: MAmberConrad

Thank you to sherry1 for providing such an awesome song for me to portray in poetry form. The song is Set Fire to the Rain by Adele. I hope I bring it justice.

Set Fire to the Rain

You claimed my heart,

Kept me close by,

I loved you with all my might.

I closed my eyes,

And could see you clear

Even when you weren't near.

My troubled soul

Intertwined with yours,

You were keeping score,

One more notch on your belt,

Your rough hands I felt,

Every time you touched me.

I awoke with a start,

My senses alert,

I could no longer be hurt,

Set fire to the rain

Let it be my gain,

I rise above your stride.

You no longer claim my heart,

I am no longer close by,

You didn't even try

To keep me around,

Digging from solid ground,

Set fire to the rain.
