The Rain Doth Comfort Me

By Maria O  November 25, 1999


Tho I remember the sweetest touch of them all

I pray the voice of the rain doth not stop today

For this morning is of silent voices flying through

My mind’s atmosphere like the breath of a child


‘tis the gasp of my mother & child…of those

Who have fallen, yet my stride takes heed

With the ear of a fawn listening for a twig’s

Aide memoire of fear & a secluded thicket


If only this sun would not come through the veil

Of soft grays to burn & wither the innocent souls

In my valley today…for now I am quiet & pensive

Within these strange walls that bleed oblivion


I lie alone,
This frightful night,
No friends,
No family,
No person in sight.

Darkness surrounding me again tonight,
I cannot see my most frightful fright.

The roar of rain,
The crack of thunder,
The sudden flash of light,
Bring relief, that I still live tonight.

My mask is off,
My fears are out,
The darkness is here,
There is no doubt.

I cannot calm what I fear the most,
I cannot stop this unholy ghost,
The darkness holds my fears so close,
I fear what we all fear the very most.

I scream, I yell,
So very loud.
Yet no one hears my pleas aloud,
I am hurt within, my heart is smashed.
I am alone, just me and my empty house.
