Torrential Rain

Poetry By: ShaunaLeigh
Song lyrics



Just pointing out how similar hate is to the rain in so many ways.

If it falls from above
You cannot hide from it
In the free world you created
There are no covers
All is exposed
The faster you run
The harder you'll get hit
I know it stings
But you've got to take it
The words are branded into my skin
My scars are proudly displayed
To tell you what I didn't try to escape
And what we all one day
Must face
To stand in the torrential rain
The place you felt safe
Has no roof
The people you trust
Have no shortcuts
The path you used to take
Is flooded
The result reaches my knees
Your tears go unseen
Your gasps go unheard
The lampposts' light
Highlights the wet pavement
Telling us which puddles to dodge
And which are unavoidable
I hope it isn't really God's tears
Like they say
If so He must be so depressed
And isn't He meant
To lead the way
We can't comfort those
That we can't see
Or don't believe in
Why can't He put a stop?
To this torrential rain
I looked up at the grey sky
And it could barely be seen for clouds
A raindrop hit me in the eye
I blinked to brush it away
My cuts are soothed now
By what caused them
There is no comfort in
Being drenched in water
Stay inside
You can still hear it
God stop the noise
Deafen out the sound
Keep your head down
It still falls on your back
You should've watched my back
Let's build a shelter
And watch it fall
Tumble down
The faster you run
The harder you'll get hit
I know it stings
But you've got to take it
The words are branded into my skin
My scars are proudly displayed
To tell you what I didn't try to escape
And what we all one day
Must face
To stand in the torrential rain
