The storm #poetry

The Storm

It’s the moment you realize how quickly you can be crushed.
How rapidly you crumble.
Love should be warmth and light.
But this was so cruel, so swift.
No time to stop and think. Consider.
The words continue to spin around you, a tornado you can’t escape.
Slashing your heart, bending and breaking your soul, your spirit.  
Life tilts, uncomfortably. You question your worth. Stability.
Your very happiness.
You flick the tears away, suck in the soft sobs.

And pray for the end of the storm.
