The Calm Before the Storm...

Poetry By: TakeMe

I think that the great thing about love isn't the feeling itself, but all the things that lead up to it. Sort of like a storm. This was a picture prompt contest I entered, and this is what I wrote.

The Calm Before The Storm...

It's not the moment that it happens,
It's the moment right before,
It's not the rain or crashing thunder,
It's the calm before the storm,

It's that feeling that you get,
As the sky begins to cry,
It's just you, the wind, and rain,
And you swear that you could fly,

The stormy clouds demand attention,
And the wind can't be ignored,
It's the love of building tension,
Just before the violent storm,

And if you've felt like this before,
Or if it's all that you dream of,
You'll know I'm not talking of rain,
But that I'm talking about love...
