She's a storm ~


She was a storm
Of quiet waters
And raging winds
Silencing the roaring flames
Putting out the fire

Controlled chaos
Races through her mind
And there is something
About her
That makes you know
She’s going to be great

She’s a stillness
Of the heart
When she puts her hand up
And it means she’s going to speak
There is power
Behind her ‘no’
And it makes perfect sense

She’s thunder in the dark
Raven hair
In a gold lit day
But she’s never afraid
Not in front of anyone

Because a storm is never afraid
Of the sun
That will dry her out
She knows
The clouds will always gather rain
And the storm knows
She will be back

these four walls ~


beyond these four walls
is a world that’s waiting
and facing it without you
is infuriating

beyond these four walls
and the paintings that reside
is a story
of all the times I cried
for you

beyond today, this time and place
is a haunting memory
of your pretty face

and I have loved you
since the day we met
and I will love you
until the last sunset

beyond these four walls
is all the mistakes I’ve made
a younger self
with all the cards displayed

beyond these four walls
is a story that’s been told
a complicated chronicle
fine champagne and marigold

beyond today,
 and the crystal tears
is a diamond studded
diary of my fears
without you

and I have loved you
since the day we met
and I will love you
until the last sunset

Today I’d like to pretend
that you don’t matter anymore
but I see you in the end
and I hold the very breath I’m taking
and I don’t know what to say
because my heart is breaking
at seeing you with someone else
