He came into my life like a quiet storm.
As the storm builds
Combination of perfect pressure and conditions.
Increasing in speed and strength
Destroying barriers and protected dunes
Gales of emotion
Culmination of beautiful rain,
Reaching my shores in breathless exaltation
Unleashing a malestorm within my soul.
I stand alone looking at the sea,
The sand whipping about, stinging my skin.
I stand alone tasting the salty spray of ocean
water mixed with tears and rain.
I stand alone waiting for another hurricane.
Palms up, eyes to the sky…
I find solace in the storm.
