tagNon-Erotic PoetrySTANDING IN THE RAIN



I first saw her standing
In the pouring down rain,
Something had happened
As she was crying from pain.

Not the usual pain
Of the physical kind,
But one sometimes not seen
But not hard to find.

I felt a deep sorrow
Coming from within,
That desperate feeling
Of nothing to win.

Life had seemed not only
To pass her by,
But knocked her down
It seemed on every try.

Now she cried alone
In the pouring down rain,
Feeling that for her in life
There was nothing to gain.

Yes, only just yesterday
Her mother had died,
That wasn’t the only reason
She now just cried and cried.

The man she thought
Would love her the rest of her life,
Now ran off without her
To make another his wife..

For eight months she had carried
Her lovers precious child,
But he selfishly left her
And her hardships upon her piled.

He said he had no love
For his unborn son,
Only thinking of himself
He decided to run.

Leaving her behind alone
To take the painful fall,
With nobody at all.
Yes, leaving her behind.

She could not handle all this
As she only just turned twenty one,
Yes, her life as an adult
Had barely begun.

So now she stands alone
In the pouring down rain,
Wondering why to her and her child
Life was so unfair, so insane.

Then she stepped to the tracks edge
Just as I saw the speeding train,
I ran quickly towards her but was slowed
By the pouring down rain.

Then suddenly it was all now over
And she no longer felt the terrible pain,
Yes, she and her unborn child
Lost their lives that night, standing in the rain…BWL
