I Asked The Rain To Stop Today

Poem By Michael Norton

I asked the rain to stop today
To see if it would oblige
To stop pounding on the window,
And saturating our lives.

I asked the rain to stop today,
With my umbrella held tight,
I pleaded with the mighty rain,
Until the dead of night.

I asked the rain to stop today,
To get a little relief,
I asked that rain to stop today,
But it kept coming down in sheets.

I begged the rain to cease today,
I begged on hand and knee,
I waited for the rain’s reply
But it only dampened me.

Dripping, cold, damp, and tired,
I walked into the night.
I was so upset at the stubborn rain,
I didn’t see the lights.

Bleeding, Lying, Dripping, Dying,
A rag doll in the street.
I asked the rain to stop today...

Confessions Of A Subway Rider

Little man in a downtown station,
Reaching for a ticket stub,
Walks through the stile,
But his coat gets stuck in the gears.


I think I’ll go home but where is that?
When your heart is nothing less then a trap,
And your feelings orbit somewhere out in space.
And your mind still lingers on that simple question of faith.

Life In A Glass Box

Life in a glass box,
Is wiser lived in solitude,
Take it from a man, who knows,
The depths of which you fall.

The Appearance Of A Line

I’m looking for a villain
Someone close enough, so that I can end my problems
Everything is getting hazy,
Lines appear that were never here before

The People That I Know Or The Story Of The Find

I took a walk
A single sentence with a subject and verb
I took a walk
Though the action of the subject is absurd

Melting Dreams To Feed The Daytime

I’ll give everything passing thing I see,
A silly name that about you and me.
And even when I sleep at night,
I’ll have to hold my eyes to stop the light
