on the eve of a storm and a love

When all the world is dark, and air
is heavier than it may seem, 
and you are everywhere but where
I dream.

When clouds roll in and breathe a sigh
and gray has overlapped the blue
the colors differ from the sky
I knew.

When thunder nears and rain spills down
and everything is washed away
I wish for you without a sound
and pray.

To lose the world I had sought
and place your sky so high above
everything I once had thought
I loved.
