Poem: Let the Storm Break

(Poetry is freedom. I wish life was.)

Let the Storm Break

let the storm break
i feel it coming
it always seems to be coming
you cant run
you cant hide
the storm will break

let the storm break
i wont cry even if i want
i wont scream into the void
ill silently manage
as the storm rages on
theres nothing else

let the storm break
let me feel as it moves
the precursor wont be that bad
once its over and done
ignore the scars forming
the bruises will go away
its over for now

let the storm break
you know what i mean
let the crash of beings
pour all over me
ill be the target
run far away

let the storm break
i wish i could run
ive tried
and failed every time
i wish i could hide
as if shelter at night
but there’s only so much
safety doesnt exist

let the storm break
id rather do anything but
ill ignore it coming
ill pretend nothings wrong
maybe just maybe
tonight it will hold off

let the storm break
why should i aim for that
when after it breaks
another storm starts off
nothing i do is right
im a failure from start to finish

let the storm break
you think you understand
you think you can help
but every time the storm breaks
a new scar will form
youll just make it worse
