i am a storm.
i can smudge out the sun in an instant
and use lightning and thunder to demand your attention.
i flood the earth with the water she desperately craves
and scare animals into their hiding places.
my thunder makes adrenaline course through your veins.
you can feel me coming from miles away.
the calm before i truly arrive is your only warning.
when you feel the pressure in the atmosphere shift,
you should prepare. you can’t ignore me.
i come when i want, stay as long as i want.
i’ll wake you from your dreams
and beat on your windows so you can’t go back to sleep.
i am the darkness, the thunder, the power, the fear.
i am all of it.
the pressure, the electricity, the rain, the force.
i am a storm.
