Call of the Storm

Call of the Storm

A Poem by Calissa Knox

I see the rain, falling on the streets
outside my window.  
As it comes down, I'm reminded of the tears
locked up inside.
I see the trees, crashing against each other
like angry figures, awoken by the wind.
The wind starts to awaken my soul.
Lightning illuminates the dark sky.
I feel the deep voice of Thunder.
It's calling my name...
I run through the rain, and tears come easily.
I feel the storm as it comes to life around me.
The storm is free, and raging wild, 
like the storm inside my soul.
I know the storm, and it knows me.
We understand each other.
I run faster as two angry souls collide.
I'm out of breath,
I watch as the sun comes up...
I wonder when the storm
and I will meet again.

The imagery fits the mood you build

Thoughts
like rivulets flowing down the panes
of my eyes
fill the morning's light
with ...me.

I run faster as two angry souls collide... Lovely phrase.

I loved this poem, this's so beautiful write. I think you love storms and love colliding either with storms up in the sky to let the rain fall down onto the earth. Ha!

Keep writing!

Here in this poem I am better able to see what you wished to convey about being one with the storm. It is more obvious in these lines that the narrator and the storm are kindred spirits. In fact, it ends with a longing to see the storm again, and so I see a friendship has bloomed.

The imagery in this one is superior to that of your other piece. While reading this piece, I felt a great sense of connection to the storm. I could picture it in my mind, a lone women with long dark hair, racing to the top of a hill as the storm whirled about her. Drenched from the rain, she shouts her anger to the sky and the storm answers with a bolt of lightning, yet instead of being harmed, she is bonded to it. The storm and she become intimately connected. She is able to call on its strength whenever she may need it.

If I had to pick one word to describe this poem it would be...primal.

Yes, this poem is primal.

I really enjoyed reading this one.

You are most welcome. And I thank you in turn. It was a pleasure reading this poem.
This is beautiful poetry, from out of the deepest feelings in you,

To connect with the tears from above as your own, and to connect with the thunders,
(the anger, together with the adrenaline and electricity) portrays here, how seasoned you are,

and how you pick up things, and emotions with nature. You're a raw talent, and I love to read your poems.

The chaotic (storm) and also in mind, says how you feel.... I loved this one very much! a 100 from me.
