Within the Eye of the Storm

Below
there is a stormocean storm
raging
flashing lightning
unfurls
like fear and hatred
searching
for souls to steal
hearts
to tear and break

gently you touch my cheek
with sunshine and cool breezes
frothy clouds below our feet
and overwhelming overcoming inundating
emotion begs for expression
in a single breath

Staring
into the darkness
hating
to see by the flashing
lightning
for it is all so very
painful
bitter and wet, infuriatingly
repulsive
and cold, colder than stone

It is all so very easy to love you
I am a dove a hummingbird a wren
and again and again and again
there is not enough for me to give
with more, much more than light
surrounding and warming us

Screaming
with anger and frustration
grotesque
like a gargoyle banshee foully
shrieking
shaking with fear and degradation
dreadful
in every distraught rumble of thunder
flooding
washing away everything of value

You are sunshine above the clouds
and with you I am delirious

Within the Eye of the Storm
