from a storm!

What do ... I …need?

What is this rising crashing storm?

What is that rolls in on boiling clouds?

Thundering through me like I am nothing but a vessel of emotional tides

The rocking and crashing getting louder

It won't subside

Finding the cracks and crevasses deep within

Eroding the edges



Let me breathe for god’s sake let me take in a breath

Agitated and raw

Feeling too much today

A sudden word

A flash that cannot be named

Sitting down the random words flow out

They become a sentence

A phrase

A paragraph

The feelings flow deeply into the words

The storm begins to ease.

Comfort begins

Finding my place in the keys of my device

Filling the pages with the day’s stormy night

Sighing I feel boiling clouds subside

The calming comfort begins as I sit to write

Allowing the storm to flow across the keys

Letting the feelings out to be seen

Writing is my heart, my creative comfort feeling space.

Finding comfort in the storm is a strange place.

But comfort in the words as they flow is straight from my heart

My comfort is in writing allowing it all to flow.
