I Chased The Storm
And The Blinding Light
That Mesmerized My Heart
I Was Overwhelmed
With The Thunder And Fury
Of Her Soul
Blowing Away
My Fears And Inhibitions

I Chased The Storm,
And Fool That I Am,
I Looked Into Her Eyes
And Fell Into The Fire
Burning There
And The Desire
Consumed Me

I Chased The Storm
And Caught Her
I Have The Scars
To Prove It
But No One
Tames The Wind
As She Move On
To Another

  1. A good riposte to the poem Chuck. I think we have been caught up in a storm like this at some stage. Calmer air is much preferred as we get older. Have a good weekend 🙂

    1. Thanks Davy! You are so right. Stormy weather isn’t for those with calmer minds. You have a great weekend too. The band I’m in is in a showcase tonight and we get to do 5 songs. Should be a lot of fun!

  2. What ephemeral thrill
    Is to be found
    In the bowing branches of the old oak
    Dancing in a tumultuous gale of the summer storm
    But what lasting peace is found
    In the steady swaying
    Of the willows arms
    To the constant, steady breeze
