dark rain.
Slicing skin, bringing unbearable pain.
Emotions kept silent, your words like a knife.
breaking my barriers, what's left to say in this life?
your words misleading,
your face covered in letters, that Iím incapable of reading.

But in the words truth will rise,
destroying rumors...Killing lies.
My heart at last beating true
Words are words, in the end its me and you.
My friend again, everything thatís dark and wicked, I will tell.
Regardless of this time, Forget the day I fell.
Once again I rise with nothing to hide.
One more time though, I might not let it slide.

Unusual form
Your form is akin to free verse, yet it rhymes. It has good flow and the visualization is fairly easy to grasp. I liked it.

Have you read this out loud to a group? If so, what was their reaction? If you haven't, you should.

"that's a tight poem, tom, watch out tho your emotions may lead me to believe that they're directed at me"...when you say "One more time though, I might not let it slide" it scares me because recently I messed up..and Tom, I cant express how sorry I am..I need you, and I dont want one mess up to destroy anything...I hope for forgiveness.
