A Quiet Storm

     A quiet storm is raging in my head
The mangled thoughts, they churn out of control
     Confusion is what’s left of the debris
A lifeless lump contains an empty soul

     A heart bereft of love will tempt the clouds
I’ll not survive the darkness and the rain
     Nothing will grow where love does not exist
Nothing will live, a dry barren terrain

     A quiet storm is raging in my head
Why you have gone, a mystery to me
     Relive; rethink each day, each word you said
I must escape, to shelter I must flee
