I knew a storm is coming

I knew it will blow me over

I knew I might not survive


I didn’t want to miss the rain

So I stood there

with open arms

Taking the wind head on

They said it’s madness

They said it’s useless

They said they are worried

That I will be left with a broken heart

But they forgot

When storm hits,

It can rip the shelter apart

So I faced it all

The gush of wind..

Wavering seas….

Tormenting rain

Unleashed all the pain…

But I stood there

Knowing that it’ll be over

And when it passed

You will be there.

Far away, yet near somewhere

A sound sleep

Splash of water on eyes

A cup of Espresso

A deep breath

And the clouds subside..
