Yesterday

Passively, I sat.....and watched ~
the disaster unfold before my eyes.
A slow moving disturbance.
Dissipating, then reforming.
Unafraid, I sat.....and watched ~
Sure it would just blow over or change direction.
I failed to notice the lack of wind.
So, I sat.....and watched ~
The clouds grew darker.
Did I hear the sirens warning of imminent danger?
I may have.
Still, I sat.....and watched ~
There was plenty of time to run for cover.
I could have found a safe route to evacuate.
I should have prepared.
Instead, I sat......and watched.
Until it was too late.
Total destruction.
Where the hell did my survival instinct go?
As the fierce, angry storm tore through my world,
I just sat..........and watched.

Spuirt Tail;

Something wicked this way comes. Hmmm? Its not for me to know, yet I wonder.

What was this storm? Was it a person, place, or thing? It was personel as it only tore through 'your' world. You have some relationship with 'tha storm' or have delt with 'it' passively in the past, or your fight or flight instincts would have kicked in.

I hope that this 'storm' does not return. I hope that you have contained and redirected its harmful power.

Your words amaze me,
Trust

trust, I do adore how you analyze my words. I feel like you want or need to KNOW what experiences put these words in my head and why it was important enough to capture them on paper (screen). That tells me a couple of things. I'm very much understood. I don't want my writing to confuse or leave anyone with the question "what does she mean by that?" Sure, details can remain a mystery...but, essentually, I want people to identify with the emotions I share. It, also, tells me a little about you. At the very least, you obviously have substance and it seems you want to feel, really feel something powerful when you read other's words. I wonder if you are this way in a physical conversation........
