Another tribute to my family. I can say the words but I want them to see what I feel.

A Cold Raindrop Fell…

A cold raindrop fell to the moist blades of grass encased in morning dew
The first drop touched my skin and soaked into my heart and it stopped beating
The shell that was left behind had no direction and no reason without you
There was no where to go and no where to hide as I awaited our next meeting
Instead this shell chose to stand there and let the other raindrops come as well
Without your guidance it collapsed onto itself, saturated beyond all repair
Without you by my side I retreat into my own personal hell
I try to protect those that think they know me from the confusion that exists there
A smile has two sides, one is seen and the other will hide
It is easier to exist amongst other humans when you pretend that you are really here
But although I try to share, I keep most of myself inside

Don’t misunderstand me, rarely do I operate in a chaotic mode driven by spite
I love all of humanity, I do my share and I play my part
I’m just saying that I am lost when separated from my guiding light
They are forever the ones that inspire me to express my inner-self through art.

Thank you, Nydian, Caitlyn and Justin
