Storm Chaser

Her eyes swell like the ocean
Hurricanes swirl and waves crash inside her
Torrents overflow out of those stormy grey eyes
But just like a summer storm
Her vulnerability will be fleeting
When morning comes she'll hide the tempest in her heart
Behind sun filled smiles and honey sweet words
She'll disguise her tears as waterfalls
Sparkling streams and promises of rainbows
No one remembers summer for destruction
Or the ocean for its darkest depths
They choose to look past the ugliness
That makes such great and terrible beauty possible
Summer is merely passionate
And the ocean is merely vast
So as her moods ebb and flow with the tide
They will say 'look how ethereal she is in her loveliness'
Her melancholia explained away as delicate beauty

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
