Symphony of the Storm

WARNING: This does not in any way relate to my life. This poem is very dark. If you’re looking for something cheery, this will not be the poem for you. This poem touches on the topic of suicide, in the form of a story. Consider yourself warned.
 

 
Lighting strikes a tree
and the fire crackles bright
The temper of the storm
Lit by the fires light
 
Eves filling with water
Released into the groud
The storms subtle symphony
A peaceful restful sound
 
A home dark curtains open
A man listens to the song
His preperations are complete
His own resolve is gone.
 
The lighting cracks
The thunder roars
He ties the rope
and locks the doors
 
The rain wails on his window
The thunder at his door
One step, tense rope.
The man is now no more.
 
The rain sets the rhythm
The thunder brings the beat
The lighting is the ambiance
Symphonic storm complete.

  1. That paints such a visual and emotional picture. I enjoy the darker side of things and my own imagination takes me there most often. I can appreciate your writing on many levels. Keep it up, and thank you for sharing.
