In The Midst Of Our Storm

Outside the storm is churning
As the cool winds blow
Inside the fire’s burning
Here in the candle’s glow

Lay me down beside you
Touch upon my skin
Passion sparks inside you
And warms you from within

Let the lightning flash its light
Outside the thunder roars
We’ll make storms of our own tonight
Here behind closed doors

Take me to the height of love
Take the words I speak
While thunder crashes from above
Take me to the peak

Whisper words upon my ear
As now the hard rains fall
Quiet me and hush my fears
By giving me your all

Let the lightning flash its light
Outside the thunder roars
We’ll make storms of our own tonight
Here behind closed doors

Caught up in the fury
The clouds are moving fast
We’re not in any hurry
Hoping that this storm will last

Sheltered in your caring arms
Protected from the storm
Captivated in your charms
I’m safe and oh so warm

Let the lightning flash its light
Outside the thunder roars
We’ll make storms of our own tonight
Here behind closed doors





 Have you ever noticed
That the words...
"Goodbye"
"I'm sorry"
"I love you"
Are so easy to pronounce
...Yet so hard to say
~Javan

Ruth, this is wonderful.  I loved the repetition of the lines...

We’ll make storms of our own tonight
Here behind closed doors

Very deliciously passionate, dear poet.

Hoot Owl, a lyrical song of pleasure and passion, of which thunderstorms can accentuate so well. Beautiful work.

Hoot~
This is so softly, seductive.
You've captured a special moment.
Almost a whisper in the storm,
and yet the thunder roars !

Stormy night ... oh, stormy night.

Where cold winds blow
and rain drop fall
There can be a blanket the greatest gift of all
Enchanting and so soooft
Beautiful the poem you did Ruth
Hugs and Love


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
