Thunder Scares Me

Source

”Thunder scares you”, she said.

”Yes, thunder scares me.”



She was right about that.

Who wouldn't be scared of the dark grey clouds in the sky?


They are threatening me.

They are coming closer.

I can feel the first rain drops on my pale skin.

My long, black hair gets wet.

The rain runs down my face. It feels like cold tears.

And I'm standing here.

I can't move my feet.

I'm paralyzed.

Someone makes me close my eyes.

My clothes are getting wet.

I'm getting colder.

I'm freezing.


The thunder scares me.

It paralyzes me.

It feels like it slowly kills me.

I'm suddenly struck by the lightning.

I'm burning.



”Thunder scares you”, she says.

”Yes, thunder scares me.”


She knows me.

Her love for me is like thunder.

I can't do this.

She's slowly paralyzing me with her love.

I can't move.

I'm losing my freedom.

I'm feeling colder.

I'm paralyzed.

Next time she's hitting me with her lightning smile,

I'll start burning.

Her love is killing me.



”Thunder scared you”, she said.

”Yes, thunder scared me.”


I lost many things because of the thunder.

I lost the love of my life.

I lost my life, because I was scared of thunder.

I was scared of loving her.

I lost.



I'll tell her when I meet her

that I won't let the thunder scare me again.

I hope it isn't too late.

Once I experienced thunder at the Grand Canyon. Then I remembered how thunder work. Hint... the clouds where below me.

Lovely poem, but a word for those that are afraid of thunder, whether it be real or through the one you love, you should never be afraid of the thunder, because as long as you can hear the thunder it means you are still alive because what could really hurt you has already struck, the lightning. Just a thought for your beautiful words. Greg

This is a real thinker...is it thunder that really scares "you" or is it "her" or something else? Really well done as it leaves your reader thinking.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

Greg, sometimes it's a good thing to be careful, but if you get struck by the lightning, it's hard to go back and cool down.

I don't like thunder and lightening storms having grown up in the mid-west. They were a lot of times a prelude to Tornadoes. Pretty scary stuff. Could relate to your poem. Voted it up and interesting.
