Although It’s Summer – Written Monday 28th June 1999

Although It’s Summer

although it’s summer
it keeps on raining
of course,
no one notices it except me
i feel the rain all the time
it’s almost as if it is my own
everyone else feels the summer
yet me, i can only feel rain
a constant and steady drizzle
that never breaks,
to reveal the sun
it’s like a cartoon cloud
that surrounds only my frame
i still search for the sun
i search like the truly bored
just searching for some fun
although it’s summer
i do seem to be turning insane
all because,
i can only ever see and feel the rain
