Forever grateful, for April showers,

 

Cause my tears, are hidden by the rain.

 

This pain inside my heart, won’t fucking go away,

 

Help me escape, until the May flowers bloom.

 

Sedate me, otherwise I’ll be awake until sunrise,

 

Night shift struggles, I’m getting home around midnight.

 

Muscle fibers ripped apart, atoms split like in a fission bomb,

 

Taking my pills like a good boy, won’t swallow with water tonight.

 

The rain keeps on falling, threatening to flood the city streets,

 

Tornado watch is in affect, watch out for dark rotating clouds.

 

The more chaotic the weather, my internal strife sees an increase,

 

Thunder booms and lightning strikes, in nature and inside my mind.

 

Fifteen more days, until hope starts to grow from the Earth’s surface,

 

I hope I get to see the flowers, assuming that I don’t fucking drown.

 

Hands shaking like T?hoku, complete with fucking aftershocks,

 

I’m not what I used to be, my telomeres can’t divide forever.

 

Heavy Rain keeps falling, absent of the five trials,

 

Flashback to 2016, it rained purple for weeks, R.I.P Prince.

 

Sinking without a lifeguard, hoping I don’t get saved, feeling suicidal,

 

Stuck inside of a genetic cycle, an endless stream of denial.

 

Forever grateful, for April showers,

 

Cause my tears, are hidden by the rain.

 

This pain inside my heart, won’t fucking go away,

 

Help me escape, until the May flowers bloom.
