The Storm

Clouds gather, raindrops falling,
Like the teardrops down my face.
Thoughts at war, emotions colliding,
Hope disappears without a trace.

Winds roaring, lightning striking,
Lights the sky and my dark room.
Fears emerging, love dispersing,
The storm shall lead me to my doom.

Thunder crashing, fires blazing,
Burning flesh and bone and hair.
Hatred shaming, sadness bringing,
Through my heart the knives do tear.
