"Her Rain"

Her rain fell   
          a deluge of broken dreams,       
                    frustrated desires, missed opportunities     
          drenching the world     
                    with her bitter storms     
Her rain fell     
           a flood of regrets and sublimation     
                     poured onto her children     
           drowning each of them     
                     with her skewed and tainted love     
Her rain fell     
           a watery veil of manipulation     
                     pushing against the banks of reality     
           overflowing her boundaries     
                     with her disillusions and dissatisfaction     
Her rain fell
