The Storm

The Storm

Soothingly,
I felt the breeze of wind
touching my freezing 
shoulders,

I always loved it, 
even when I got older

Yet nothing could cure 
the pain that lived 
inside of me,

Nothing could hide the person 
I was trying not to be,

It wasn’t the cold that 
caused me to live frozen,

It was me, I had been chosen,

Don’t know why, 
never knew the real aim

Only thing clear is that 
the desires of my heart
were to blame,

Unknowingly I lived in them, 
surrounded, suffocated

Still drowning willingly, 
intoxicated

Flying up and around, 
they looked for their salvation

Welcoming the upcoming 
pain in my chest,

delving in the sea 
of their own creation,

Saviour of mine, 
where are you? 

You left me in my state 
of wonder, this state of pain

Waves won’t calm,
desires won’t stop 
and I can’t refrain,

Weren’t you the only one
that could pull me away 
from them?

Called out for you 
but got no reply,

So I lost hope 
and started to cry,

Yet, somehow your shadow 
encircled me as 
I struggled,

I felt your presence 
through my battles,

Saw your face when I 
rose from my loss,

Just to find your soul,
as I turned around
conquered them

and made it
across
