Calm before the storm

Its the inevitable calm before the storm.
You Imagine what your life will be like,
You smile at the silly memories,
You gaze off into the distance and think
about how you love the sunset...

You're like a child dancing in the rain,
Unattainable glee tugs at your lips.
You're free falling and you don't even know it.

You scream but the thunder has drowned you out.
You walk, holding your arms across you chest to try and keep warm.
You breath puffs out in a white feathery smoke, and it shakes.

Those clouds are so taunting,
Those tears are wasted,
Those step you take are useless
Those voices telling you you'll fall are lying
Those games they play are haunting.
Those words are tasted.
Those line are a tangled mess.
Those Dreams are your reason to keep trying
