151 (who?)
Rain Dancer

So many things to do
But I canít concentrate tonight
Somehow I canít convince myself
That everything will be all right
I donít think Iíll be ok
And all my friends seem to know
But the only one here to call on me
Is the rain, rapping on my window

And through the rippling glass
Again, I sit and stare
Down the empty city streets
And sure enough, sheís there
In pigtails and pink ribbons
Ignorant of her age
Dancing for her unseen audience
Upon the asphalt stage

Tell me little figurant
How to dance beside my dreams
How to hear laughter though my tears
Teach me nothingís as it seems
And make me believe it,
Beautiful rain dancer
Let me spend some time with you
Tell me why I act this way
And do the things I do

Then teach me how to be like you

Little ballerina
Teach me to dance in the rain
Tie ribbons in my hair
And let me be like you again

       Free me from my pragmatic chain
This poem is at least 2 years old now, but that's ok. I'm leaving now, I'm not really sure when I'll be back. So far I've given all my old watchers a little something but my poetry friends. So here's one of the first poems I ever posted on DA back on my old account. It's not long, but I hope you enjoy it now as much as you did two years ago.

I've discouraged critique this time. I've had this piece critiqued over and over and over and over and this time I'd just like it to be. Take it for what it is or leave it alone.

One way you can upload a poem is to go into writer and type it in, or you can copy and paste the words into writer.

and you may never know that the light you shone was a beacon for some unseen stranger... even if for just a moment.

This is so wonderful. Especially the extended metaphor in the last lines of the second stanza. *claps*

It's almost inspiring. Scratch that. It IS inspiring.
