When It Rains, I Pour
dmartin

It slipped through the cracks,
 1
the same as rain falls from the clouds,
 2
it all just becomes too much to hold on to
 3
and then the scales tip... it pours
 4
 
 
and it doesn't stop
 5
waterfalling on my head,
 6
I want to move
 7
to chase the night back into day
 8
 
 
chasing the stars away
 9
and keeping dreams that matter at bay,
 10
maybe the moon gets filled with light
 11
and out comes the next day... it pours
 12
 
 
Maybe my eyes are the moon,
 13
my memory the clouds
 14
and I take in everything around me,
 15
so much that I rain... I pour
