Stormy News - Poem by Brittney Pennington

The rain poured the thunder rattled
with every lighting strike
it became harder to breath
my chest tightened I clutched
at first the words the man had
said couldn't be true

I fell to my knees I couldn't help
but think why me why you
sadness was in his eyes then
wicked thought crept upon me
why not him

he said the same oath he was
about the same age he
whore the same uniform
this mans gets to live when you don't

in the same moment it came the anger left me
left I knew it was it was not his fault
it could have been anybody we just drew
the short straw the thunder shook
the door way one more time

I stood up and the man left me
and with one single storm bad news
walked on my doorstep and pain
entered my heart my heart that would
never completely go away
only soften with time
