Rain Down The Window


The rain is running down the window
Like the tears run down my cheeks
It feels like you left yesterday
But it has been many weeks
Friends said you were using me
To become a citizen
And that the love you showed me
Was nothing more but pretend
But the feelings that I had for you
Were true and from the heart
Not once, when we were together
Did I think we would ever part
But go you did, without a look
At the man you left behind
And the heart that now is empty
Of the love he tried to find
I could wish that one day
Your deceit will be found out
And the law will hit you soundly
With the strongest clout
But I can't, because my dear
You're still a part of me
And the torch of love I carry
Is plain for all to see.

    This is highly emotional and nice poem. I like the optimism expressed at the end. There is still room for reconciliation (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
