Poem Comparing Love To A Thunderstorm

This poem is about how I feel toward someone, not knowing if he meant the things he said and did or if it was all just an act. I still don't know, but it was worth it. I hope this poem shows how I felt...still feel for him.

The Calm Before A Storm


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015 with permission of the Author.

I hate the way you remind me of a thunderstorm
The way the violent wind, rain, and lightning shake me...
You shake me
And yet I find myself unable to resist stepping out into the madness
Not having the power to run for cover
The lightning that flashes across the sky, lighting up the clouds
That's your smile, your laugh
The way it lights me up
The thunder that calms me
Draws me to you
The way everything about you is dark
The same peaceful dark in the fury of a storm
The warm rain that pours from the sky
Washes over me like a kiss
A kiss that shuts my body down
Unable to think, breathe, feel anything but you
A kiss that shuts me down like a power outage
The thousands of rain drops soak me
They remind me of a thousand thoughts that drown me
I think I could fall for you, maybe I could love you, I know I adore you...
When the lights come back on in the morning,
I look for you...
I find traces of you, here and there...
But in the moment
I think you tricked me into believing that you were something that would last
I miss the serenity that you gave me
The calm in your arms
It was so much like the calm before a storm
Oh, and did it ever storm.
