The Storm

And from the thunderous gale that has erupted inside this new reality comes an overbearing silence that weighs down on my tired conscience. It gazes softly, like a flame watching over the sleeping lovers or a hand which gently caresses my weary soul. It passes over me like a wave of smoke, embodying me in a cloud. Comforting at first, the space becomes deafening and I soon become lost in this eternity, a scream lost in the nothingness that reduces to a murmur reverberating off the walls of my skull. To become everything -- a mode of the mundane morphing and mutating itself into a novelty of colours and fractals of light. But just for an instant. More smoke. And then the fall. As I tumble the storm buffets me- a reinvigorated force that has returned with beauty and span unimagined. I lay still. The Eye has passed. And now I am back here, and not there, once again.
