Love

A time of turmoil
Humanity on the rocks
All compassion gone

Heart hardened like stone
From pain, fear, disappointment
My internal shell

Then this loving face
Acts as the water or wind
I break down and cry

I needed this light
In a time when peace alludes
Love among the hate

Fade to Blue

Glittering sun beams
Glissade across stained glass panes
Mercurial mood

Shifting bright candy colors
Until daylight fades to blue

Lightening Strike

Deep in the grey gloam
A single flash of lightening
Creation begins

Purifying rain tumbles
Comforting my depression

Tears

Tears flow down my cheeks
Long after the rain has stopped
Puddle at my feet

Your soothing palm on my back
I am no longer alone
