Unusually cloudy, rainy weather in the desert brings on a bout of depression.
The words that I write, I often don't share
Those that read them, don't seem to care

I speak of my sadness, still they don't hear
The Sound of Silence, a cloak I must wear

Clouds upon clouds, the sun I can't find
This rain won't stop, I'm losing my mind

Grey skies above, to sadness I'm confined
Tears in my eyes, to happiness I seem blind

I pray for the day, when I put meaning to this
The pain I feel, makes me look into the abyss

Will the blackness below be better than this
Or just emptiness like a loved ones last kiss
