Chasing Rainbows

Open up your heartache
and let in all the lies
keep on searching for love
until the tears run dry
You don't know why
your heart never heals
traveling between heartbreaks
on the back of ideals
You're just waiting for the clouds to part
and for a rainbow to light the way
Yet the skies are forever gray

You tell yourself
that everything is o.k.
Another guy wasn't good enough
and tomorrow is another day
looking around
so lost and confused
not knowing where to go
or what you're supposed to do
You're just waiting for the clouds to part
and a rainbow to light the way
Yet the skies are forever gray

You look into a mirror
that you're too scared to touch
fourteen years of this
is thirteen years too much
looking for another bed
to rest your raging mind
though your eyes remain wide open
your soul still wonders blind
You're just waiting for the clouds to part
and a rainbow to light the way
Yet the skies are forever gray

    How do you know, how woman feels, how I try to forget, and how I can't…If he is dead you can't bring him back, all what you see is the clouds…Thanks

    RavensRants is a really cool website that teaches you about how cruel and mean the world can be. And al of the poetry has meaning and truth behind them.

  24. Susan says:

    I like this poem, but the "rainbow" makes this poem 10 times better for me, due to the fact that i have finally found the person i want to spend my life with, and she is female.

    Other then that the poem is written very well, i enjoyed it.

    how sad.. =<

  28. Bill says:

    Under same skies we die
    We go
    God, we rage these days
    I'm one for complaint
    No saint's told me how
    to be
    There are rainbows of knives
    But we write our own lives

    I am no reply to a frightened
    little question in a mind bent
    on more and more sad sackery

  29. Storme says:

    I get how most of you poetry and lyrics have your feelings woven into them. It makes me feel like I;m not insane when I right
    Thanks for making everything seem a little less crazy

  30. ticeygirl says:

  31. ShaDow says:

    so many people find insparation in your work… i just hope you continue so you can lighten my life a little more. it was awesome but did you ever find the rainbow that you talk about or is that the point of the poem, to exaggerate the effect that the search is far greater than the find?
    – a fellow shadow lost in the blindness of the light

  32. Erica13387 says:

    That was the most poetic lyrics that I have ever sung to myself. I really enjoyed it. I give you my heart as a token of my gratitude. ERICA

  33. Robin says:

    Personally, I found it sad to think someone would waste their life waiting for a man. It's heartbreaking to me that people don't feel complete without another. Thus, they never find their true selves.
