Raining Tears

Raining Tears

A Poem by Karina Longo
"

Poetic lyrics - "Inspired by Depeche Mode lyrics of "Precious" and The Verve's "Love is Noise".

"

How far do we get when we're still alive?

Where do we stay when we're not buried in the ground?

I know the answers but I never reply

I wish I was wrong, I wish I could fly

 

Walking through the clouds above me and you

An angel cries and my heart feels confused

It's raining tears and we feel so cold

The frosty days are burning my soul

 

What do we need to belong together?

Is it a question of time or it will never happen?

Raining tears so wildly and intense

Broken glass in the way and my feet feel no pain

 

Walking through the clouds above me and you

An angel dies and my heart feels so bruised

It's raining tears all over my face

Love is a mirror, love is a grace

Love is a curse, love is a maze -

Love is.

Love is real. We gotta keep on living, therein lies the mystery.

We go as far as our hearts allow,
Whether ash or buried, our body becomes ground.
Disregard the answers you know,
It's time to fly, to you I will show.

The clouds of heaven do not compare,
To the warmth of soul when I breathe your air.
These freezing tears of rain you speak,
I'll fight them off, warm now you'll keep.

Love is all we'll ever need,
To be together for eternity.
I'll lay atop that broken glass,
Protecting you from that painful slash.

I heard one day an old man say,
When angels die they give away,
The gift of ever lasting love,
They send it down as a beautiful dove.

Hush now love and feel my heart,
This is the end of life, eternity shall start.
Love is bound not by time,
Only the ability to call you mine.

-I read your poem and my words just.. erupted - GREAT piece.. and I thought i'd just share this directly as a "review" as opposed to messaging you it. By far one of my favorite pieces of yours, no.. this is my favorite piece of yours !!!

When I was little I used to think it rained when someone died, and their were too many tears for the heavens to handle, so they poured them on us…reminding us how much life truly means. I think you just inspired me to write a poem, you made me look into my past and reminded me the meaning of tears.
I especially loved the last verse…
Walking through the clouds above me and you
An angel dies and my heart feels so bruised
It's raining tears all over my face
Love is a mirror, love is a grace
Love is a curse, love is a maze -
Love is.

"Love is.", is the ultimate acceptance.

I think this is my favorite piece that i have read of yours, the first part caught me, "I wish I was wrong, I wish I could fly" love that.

I enjoyed this read, you have a way with your words that weave emotion with thought. I guess for an Angel to die it would be a spiritual death, and on that day we are all facing unrest. For there was a time when Angels fell, and took with them a wish for hell, and in the Devil's forthright it doesn't end well. Love is the saving grace; Yes, "Love is."

Nice Write!

Love is all those things and oh so much more. I live the first verse and what are the answers to those questions it seems you know. Want to share? :)
