Poem: It is Raining in My Closet

Trigger Warning!


Rain has many meanings…

Depression

This may or may not be easy to see. For those of us who have dealt with depression before…


It is Raining in My Closet

It is raining in my closet.
It is raining outside as well.
It distracts my mind.
Rain should not be inside.

It is raining in my closet.
I should be fast asleep,
but the rain is pouring
denying me my need.

It is raining in my closet.
How do I stop the downpour?
Could I fix the roof,
or do the pipes need repair?

It is still raining in my closet
Nothing seems to stop it.
Whenever it pours outside,
the rain collects in my closet

It is raining in my closet.
The bucket is there for capture.
As it fills, my heart weakens.
At some point, it will spillover.
