Transcript of THE RAIN WITHIN MYSELF

To you, I was a window.
You opened me
And enjoyed the scene as you pleased,
And inhaled the breeze and colours.
To seek shelter from the storm,
You closed the shutter
And i became a robe
Snugly wrapped around you.
Stanza One
Stanza Three
To you, I was a dream;
I was water;
I was sand;
I was reality on command;
And like indigestion’s after-taste,
forgotten.
To you, I was a window.
You opened me
And enjoyed the scene as you pleased,
And inhaled the breeze and colours.
To seek shelter from the storm,
You closed the shutter
And I became a robe
Snugly wrapped around you.

To you, I was a tunnel
In which you could shelter when you wished
And could conceal me, too.
To keep your footprints from sight,
You walked in me for life.

To you, I was a dream;
I was water;
I was sand;
I was reality on command;
And like indigestion’s after-taste,
forgotten.

When you talk in your dreams,
I have to listen lying awake.
But no dream listens
To my wakeful words.

TECHNIQUES
Overwhelmed?
In the poem "The Rain Within Myself" the speaker utilizes the character to portray the idea that, when an individual seeks comfort from another person the feeling or benefit among the two individuals' may not be mutual as one may feel neglected when the other receives their benefit and wishes to receive the same convenience but does not obtain it in the end due to ones intentions to keep their relationship silent.
Techniques:
Metaphor (which is a predominant figurative
language from the poem)

The narrator describes themselves as:
"A window"
"A robe"
"A tunnel"
"A dream"
"Water"
All of these suggest the narrator's openness towards their relationship. The "window" invites discovery of the narrator towards their relationship and the partner. The "robe" and "tunnel" protects the partner or acts as a symbol of comfort (robe) or a barrier from reality (tunnel). And the "dream", speaks of the future and the necessities of a developing relationship.
Techniques:
Simile
The narrator describes the partner as:
"Like indigestion after-Taste"
This compares the narrators relationship with their partner as being something other than pleasurable and was seemingly unwanted and "forgotten"

Techniques:
Alliteration:
The narrator describes the partners flaws:
"Listen lying"
"Wakeful words"
"Could conceal me"
"Which you could shelter when you wished"
1. The use of the letter "w" is given out by the narrator which gives a sense of warmth and peace. The mood establishes peace and calmness and is quickly destroyed by the harsh sounds by the line "Could conceal me"
2.The hard "c" sound is suggested that the individual could be over powered and restrained by the narrator's partner.
3. Both "listen" and Lying" have both soothing sounds that coincides its compliments that the quietness of the evening when the narrator is able to think for herself.
