Peaceful Storm

August 25, 2011
Come, lightning, flash your gold-white sword,
waken slumb’ring thrills, now restored.
Thunder, hear my languishing call:
pour down a booming waterfall
to release chains of agony.
Clamor shall blend to harmony.
Let thunder sing bass vibrato,
ringing out with sweet legato.
Oh, rain, please cleanse my soul of woes,
release me from tortuous throes.
Trickle down the depths of my mind,
sweep away my life’s wear and grind.
To me, you are no dark maelstrom,
your strong whipping gales bring me calm.
My heart, soaked, drips with joy until
you evaporate at God’s will.

To whom it may concern: This poem is supposed to capture a specific feeling/emotion (like many of my poems). It's that feeling like whenever you have something stressful building up inside of you and then you talk to one of your best friends and let it allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll out? THAT'S the feeling this is supposed to capture :) Enjoy!!!
