The Storm Inside

The Storm Inside
Your distance echoes like thunder above me

Your silence speaks louder than the lightning

As it struck my heart

     Where you touched it

          Giving light

               Where darkness lies

But as flashes they fade

The further you go the more you hide

Remind yourself

     The care you say you don’t hold

          Slips through

               As your distance grows.
