Thunderstorm

Where is the truth that the storm clouds impart?
Let the feeling of dread and the promise of drear
Give comfort to shadows which color my heart
Please don’t confuse me today with false cheer
Send me a tempest to make my thoughts clear 

Where is the storm with its fury unfurled?
To awaken to sunshine just somehow feels wrong
as if everything today will be fine with the world
Don’t mock me with birds chirping fraudulent songs
Give me a thunderstorm, and bring it on strong

    A thunderstorm would be nice. Remind me not to talk to you before you have your coffee! Nicely done. Double expresso for you! ;) Love it. ~Kilmer~

    I can relate so well!....Life can be a crazy whirlwind sometimes, and as unpredictable as a thunderstorm. But, I would want it no other way!...Sunshine and birds chirping is so overrated! :) Excellent piece of poetry you wrote here! Loved it!

    I must make sure you know what I meant below was that you write beautifully about storms or anything else---not that "Storms Become You" but that writing about them becomes you!

    Those last 2 lines: Fierce. Sometimes, you need a little thunder to crack through the skies and reveal its true colors.
