I'd like a thunderstorm
With lighting and pounding rain.
A storm so fierce
It needs to take
A whole town’s electricity
To fuel its fury.
The lightning should be bright enough to stun the blind.
The thunder should be loud enough to disorient minds.
Not forever but long enough.
Not forever, but just long enough.
The rain should make the windows tremble.
A storm you can see, hear, and feel.
It will make
Consume. It will consume.
Time, space, energy.
And we will realize that the storm is worse than our problems.
Honey, this storm is too loud to fight over.
And just like that, peace.
We are happiest when we play the victim.
And now we are no longer the monster.
The home is now safe.
The house… Not so much.
But it is a small sacrifice.
This is what I want.
Mother Nature, make it happen.
