The Storm Inside

She was powerless

standing in the face of the storm

so she simply surrendered

watched it roll on in

& loved him till it passed

Louise Alexandra Erskine

you & I

two of the darkest thunder clouds to find their way together

feeding of each others pain

energy filled particles colliding

there was always going to be one hell of a storm

but

my God the lightening we made was spectacular

Louise Alexandra Erskine

The thunder may never have hurt anyone

but beware

the lightning that follows burns like hell

Louise Alexandra Erskine

Sipping whisky in the moonlight with him

calming the storm in her

Louise Alexandra Erskine

There are two ways to survive a storm

batten down the hatches, remain beneath it

and wait for it to pass in its own time

or

rise above it where the skies are clear

Louise Alexandra Erskine

I didn’t see it at the time

I was too lost inside the storm

but you were my lighthouse

illuminating those thundering skies

shining

keeping me safe

&

leading me home

Louise Alexandra Erskine
