Broken Things Ache When It Rains

I have heard broken things ache when it rains
and tonight proved that to be true

happiness finds itself on the cutting edge
just how empty the night is without you

outside pours on a day I had felt better
packing my dreams of you to put away

and now I have to face a crying night
darknessí heart and I miss with the same display

I hold my breath each time of flashing light
and feel each crash as echoed pain

how did I get so lost in chasing a butterfly day
and end here in clouds that sob rain

wrap myself tightly in sheets of my own
as night falls outside dripping tears

why does it hurt this badly in the rain
that seeps deeper when it appears



"be prepared to bleed"  Joni Mitchell

Just when I figured you could not outdo the last one, I read this one.  Into the library with this heartache.

when you ache I do
its not even raining here
except in my heart
where your every feeling lives
and gives sustenance to me
~*~
so please be happy
I can no longer stand pain
I need love to live
living with the thought of you
beating in my heart of hearts

Fool, said my Muse to me, look in thy heart and write.

An excellent write, but so much talent deserves joy.

Helen,

I don't have the answers but you certainly inquire beautifully!
