Bolts of lightning caress the sky
Their partner's sonic boom attacks

waking dreams
I lie awake, tossing and turning
thinking, feeling nothing
Except my own heartbeat
Wishing it was joined with another
My Juliet's Romeo
My love's duet
He pays me no mind, no sense
"Just Friends," he says.
I say, "I guess."

Nice job Sharra- I like your use of imagery in particular, you create a sense of place and mood that will linger with the reader. Way to go!
