Cup Of Rain

He’s written his rules
In invisible ink
She’s thirsty for answers
But can’t get a drink

Very good rhyme and sense of humor.

Gyp's~ This is a wonderful poem! My favorite stanza is the first one. Such great imagery. Especially 'she's thirsty for answers...' Flows nicely in a poem with the title 'Cup of Rain'. I also liked, 'A cup full of rain, Won’t give you a river.' Such a grim reminder of those who aren't willing to even meet you half way in a relationship. Such is life, I suppose...I love how you turned a somewhat saddening topic into such a beautiful poem. There's a softness to it...maybe that's the rain image in my head. Anyway, Great Poem! :) ~Courtney
I like this, you have managed to convey perfectly what it feels like to be in the dark, and scared to ask for light incase it's all too much and the bulb blows! Moyaxx
Very well done here Gyp's. avr
Incredible. It zeros in on the 'wait factor'...you know when you were little and you were told to wait for something like a visit from your dad that day and with each passing car, each hour that passes, your spirit deflates a little more....you wait and wait and wait...for sumthin' that just ain't gonna happen... I dunno 'bout you but I HATE waiting and waiting and waiting.....
I just love this poem! It is extremely well crafted - and I particularly like the 3rd verse re sharpening her claws...and the ending is superb. I am trying to navigate my way round the website, but definitely want this one in my Favourite Poems.
Clever last lines. I like that expression. A cup full...won't make a river. Hugs Jan
This is so bitter sweet. Very well done. Chrissie
