The Rain

Natalie P., Carmichael, CA By EnnaGirl, Sacramento, CA

I’m so lonely
I think I could burst
My heart aches
The butterflies inside my chest screaming
Giant monsters tearing at my flesh
Cold metal lying across my bare skin
The pain
The cold hard pain
Rain pours down
I cannot stop the rush
I cannot stay the flood
Red dances before my eyes
Spots of red inside the haze
But the pain does not stop
The tears roll down my skin
The salty tang filling my mouth
Laughter echoes in my ears
I do not see them
I do not see the tormentors
They do not understand
What it is like to bear the weight of the rains
They do not know how to cease the flow of the raging waterfalls
