The Storm

by Mandy Doerr

I see the storm clouds coming in
With grey billowing into black
I hear a rumble in the distance
As the smell of rain reaches me

With grey billowing into black
The clouds cover the evening sky
As the smell of rain reaches me
I feel the energy of the storm

The clouds cover the evening sky
Racing towards the sunset
I feel the energy of the storm
As I stare out my front door

Racing towards the sunset
The wind howls it's passion
As I stare out my front door
I feel drawn to enter the fury

The wind howls it's passion
As the lightning cracks the sky
I feel drawn to enter the fury
Only caution holds me back

As the lightning cracks the sky
The rain comes hurtling down
Only caution holds me back
I still watch out my door

The rain comes hurtling down
Hailstones start to cover the ground
I still watch out my door
The hail glows eerie white

Hailstones start to cover the ground
Lightning sears the darkness
The hail glows eerie white
As the rain comes down in sheets

Lightning sears the darkness
There is night behind the clouds
As the rain comes down in sheets
The rhythm comforts my being

There is night behind the clouds
I retire to my waiting bed
The rhythm comforts my being
As I drift into fitful sleep
