Wicked Rain

Lovers hold hands as they walk
People smile in the sunshine
Running through the park
Children shout happily
Everyone is smiling
Except me
Whatever I do
Wherever I go
The rain pours down
The wicked rain
What I love dies
What I make turns to dust
Who I love are broken
The wicked rain corrupts
And who I am infects
What I am decays
Made of flaw and defect
Flesh moved by lust
This darkness harrows me
Turns me hollow inside
The wicked rain melts my soul
Makes me long to be whole
I wish I could remember
What it felt like
To feel numb
But instead
I just watch the rain
Cover me
The sorrow bled
I feel so cold
