Ashes

The lightning strikes down upon her heart
But no fire within will it start
The embers have all turned to ash
By this world that has been so brash
And as a cold wind blows through her soul
It takes the pieces that once were whole
Scattering them all far and wide
Leaving emptiness deep inside


Rhythm of the Rain

A return stroke, cloud-to-ground lightning strike.

Dark clouds hang heavy overhead
With an ominous sense of dread
No light this day is shining through
The storm above begins to brew
Winds sweeping and lightning flashes
In the distance thunder crashes
The rain falling in heavy sheets
The worlds now a drum that it beats
It keeps a rhythm true and pure
That nothing could ever obscure
So as the rain falls this day
And the trees do gently sway
Let the rhythm fill your heart
And let that dread now depart


Thunder In My Heart

Intercloud lightnings over Toulouse (France). ...

 Raindrops are falling from the sky
Hiding tears streaming from my eye
Thunder rolls deep within my heart
Lightning strikes as it rips apart
Not lost love or heartache causing this pain
But loss of faith that love will ever reign
Past love found has ended so bleak
Pain felt from each has left me weak
To trust and love someone takes such strength
Easier to keep others at arm’s length
But solitude is no way to live
When a heart holds so much love to give
