when the rain stops

Gregory Ramos 1961 (Azusa)

how will i feel
when the rain stops
what will change
where will i be
depression over rides
my feelings real
gray skies in my head
over come the dread
can't seem to put it
together , for whatever
it is worth, i am stuck
in this constant mud slide
of total fear, of being
swept away in the raging
waters of emotions
bouncing off debris of worry
slurry of mixed thoughts
need a break in this storm
something positive a focus
winds blowing life away
blurred by past regrets
hindered by the what ifs in life
need a new beginning
a want of something
a feel of a real scene
just want to sleep now
end the weather in my mind
repeating over and over
"tomorrows forecast rain
with winds at 45 miles
an hour , the burnt areas will
be on mud slide watch"
