Till Thunder Breaks

She only leaves me when it’s raining,

to wash away the pain

 

Clouds an ablution to her memories dark,

 drowning a past refrain

 

She returns as the skies are clearing,

to dry inside my warmth

 

Our love in place until thunder breaks

—again to chase the storm

Reaching Out

They just want to feel something…

the audience again new

 

They just want to escape time,

for a moment then, or two

 

They just want to know you care,

after what the past has cost

 

They just want you reaching out

—touching something that they’ve lost
