I Am

I am the tranquil sea
And you are a stone
Cast upon me,
Creating ripples that
Disturb and disrupt
My natural state,
Leaving me confused as
I desperately try to
Calm my surface.
I am a flower
On a lonely hill
And you are a violent gale,
Pulling and tearing 
Bending my stem
Groping my petals
Ripping my roots 
From the delicious 
Life-giving soil I need
And leaving me bruised,
Broken and violated.
You are lightning-
A fire- 
Igniting my soul
Engulfing me
Leaving me in ashes
The thick tendrils of dust
Choking me, preventing
The sweet, pure oxygen
I crave from reaching
Its destination.
You are the cancer inside me,
The sickness ever growing,
Silently spreading,
And slowly stealing
My life
Away.
