Stormy Soul, Stormy Weather

Emma Dickenson

Destiny now out of reach,

The broken stones corrupt the beach,

Silent rocks in fading sun,

Await the tide to bring them home.

Saline waves like salty tears,

Whisper words to stone deaf ears,

Frustrated seagulls fly away,

They might as well be mute today.

Silence dancing all around,

Upsets the stillness I have found,

Upsets the sky, upsets the sea,

And water stumbles over me.

The oceans heave their final sigh,

To mark the tearing of the sky,

Which crumbles now with no regrets,

And kisses pebbles with its wet.

As blackness overcomes the light,

Drumroll introduces night,

They call to me my name out loud,

The darting creatures in the cloud.

And leave an imprint in the gloom,

A purple glow to soothe the moon,

Who with broken heart and stinging eyes,

Can only watch as the whole world cries.
