The sky is raining madness
The sky is a deep shade of cerulean blue-
The sky reflects the shadows cast by mountains of oblivion.

The sky weeps its rain upon me
The sky is darkening and threatening.
The sky inter-meshes with the tears
emanating from my heart that bleeds pain and fear.

The sky, so ominous taunts me.
The sky reflects the silhouettes of my aspirations.
The sky captures my nightmares,
Transforming into a tranquil dream state.

The sky is thundering anger
That rises from the depths of hell’s inferno-
The sky is drowning me inside a river of toxic rain.
But I keep searching for redemption.

The sky emanates voices summoning me-
Voices that only I can hear.
The sky is illuminated by hidden stars.
The sky produces cumulus clouds
Blending with the luminescence of the rising and setting of the sun.

The sky unfolds into the universe.
The sky is forever magical and mysterious
Infinitely changing in intensity and hue.
The sky is constant- its miracles, never abating.
The sky is often stunning but at times, behaves erratically.

The sky could hold the answers to my dreams-
My dreams are illuminated by hidden stars
That shall someday come out from hiding.
