A loud roar from the sky announces a stormy night
Artistic souls may find inspiration
in the dark clouds
In the rhythmic refrain of the falling rain
A song may come, or a dark memory
might meander through the corridors of the mind
emerging in a.... haunting melody
"Into each life some rain must fall"
But the rain may be too heavy
For tender souls to endure
When they emerge from the storm
they have scars that never seem to heal
Sculpting their character in silent ways
Emotional storms make us stronger
But scars linger in dark spaces
Surfacing in unpredictable ways
Can you hear the haunting melody?
Thunder peals, and a poet's pen hits the page
Expressing thoughts in silence
But within is a 'quiet storm'
