This painting and poem is inspired by the feelings and emotions which are experienced whilst suffering from agoraphobia.
There are days when all I want is rain
the cathartic washing of the soul
with every droplet easing my pain
lost, I continue in this black hole.
Staring from my imprisoned windowpane
I imagine myself taking a stroll
allowing the wet the chance to explain
why the sudden downpour, makes me feel whole.
Walking obliviously again
my mind becomes a rapid sinkhole
thoughts collide escaping the membrane
like rocks passing through a buttonhole.
Looking outside with a sense of disdain
feelings of insanity take control
the need to escape taps at me again
my umbrella is left without a role.
How I long to walk carefree in the rain.
