on the front steps of my darkened house,
A flash of lightning across the sky
Catches my eye.
I look up to see clouds curtaining the moon.
You’re standing under the same sky
Somewhere only the moon can see you.
A rain drop falls on my cheek.
I close my eyes and you’re there
The raindrop tracing your soft contours.
The wind is picking up.
Raging storm is silence to my ears.
In that silence I hear your name
Echoing in the empty chambers inside me
Tell me the wind whispers in your ear
Of sweet melodies, long forgotten.
Lost in my reverie.
Time melts into oblivion.
In stolen moments
With a hush inside and outside.
I open my eyes, the night has cleared
Transported back to the front step of my darkened house.
Till the next storm comes we will be
So far apart,
under the same sky.
