Black Cloud

Strong winds blow,

door rattles, the sound

crushing my comfort,

in repose, eyes wide open.

Quiet storm hiding

within this cloud,

suddenly thunder claps

shaking the foundation.

Flash of lightning…CLACK!

Rumbling resounds againBOOM!

Another strike, and again

never the same place twice.

Fearful tears, stomach

turned upside down

seeking refuge, patiently

awaiting the calm.

Sounds of peace a lie,

gullible, I emerge.

(thunder)…BOOM! (lightning)…CLACK!

Darkness monopolized the night.
