Rainy Night in Georgia

Rainy Night in Georgia

A Poem by wordman
"

"
Color me gray
as the sky fades to black
color me sad
on this cold rainy night

Rainy night in georgia
takes a toll,
as the rain
falls on my soul

I miss you sweet heart
i need you to hold
i need you to touch me baby
touch my soul

I guess 
i should have never let you go
now i feel you sweet heart
deep down in my soul

You see 
true love never dies
and as i stand here in the rain
my heart still cries ...

A lovely poem indeed.

A couple suggestions?
All your stanzas have an ABCB rhyme scheme except for the first one. You might want to change the last line in that 1st stanza to something like, "I want my sweetheart back"

Also, I know spelling doesn't count in poetry, in fact, you can even make up your own words, but the last word on the last line should be cries.

Clearly you've taken the title from a very popular song, and yet your twist and personal poem here is magnificently put together concerning the feeling of longing that love instils in us.

WELL DONE

My pleasure
Sadness expressed by rain. I like progression of soul to heart. The change brings attention to the repetition.

I simply love the rain. I simply love the realization and regret at letting someone special go. I also love the rythm and rhyme.
