"Love is a poison, but it is also the antidote."

Tiny droplets splash the ground,
Meeting the pavement with a tiny sound,
But all together they sing to the skies,
As they fall from a crying cloud’s eyes.

They beg for the clouds to stop their tears,
Sadly clouds do not have ears,
And so they didn’t hear the raindrops pleas,
Their unheard screaming for mercy.

So the tears continue sliding,
Dripping as the clouds keep crying,
Falling to their inevitable death,
Sucking in their one last breath.

But for the raindrops it is too late,
The poor little droplets have reached their fate.
Life and death in a matter of seconds,
It was destiny, or so god reckons.

I came up with this in about 20 minutes. The strange thing is, it wasn't raining when i wrote it...

Jackie! you rock at writing! (omg, i'm really sorry, everyone was writing "jackie", "jackie" so i was like....oh....her name's Jackie) i really think this is good, but sometimes i think it repeats the same idea over and over again, but that might be poetic too, depending on how you look at it~
