The Hurricane

by Twisted Heart   Mar 13, 2006


Just a shadow
a song, perhaps
caught within the corner
of a place wrapped in confusion.
The wind whistles
low into the night
ever so gently it goes
it's words whispering through the darkness.
Slowly it grows
invading the silence
parting it's depths with despair
and reaching the crescendo of rage.
Embittered turmoil it quakes
stealing the essence of harmony
beating against the solitude of peace.
It's vibrant voice screams
ripping around haphazardly.
Then it's gone
and in it's hasty retreat
a quite slumber is left to breath.

    WOW! WOW! WOW! I have such a hard time writing about nature, but you did an exellent job on this....I'm just so afraid that with how much I praise your work you're just going to start thinking that I'm just saying it to be nice, but really...you are VERY talented. I loved the lines:
    Slowly it grows
    invading the silence
    parting it's depths with despair
    and reaching the crescendo of rage.
    These lines almost make it sound graceful...and yet they convey a feeling of anger. Once again, great job. 5/5 as always! :)

    Beautiful imagery and just astounding emotion.
    I love these lines:

    "caught within the corner
    of a place wrapped in confusion"

    "beating against the solitude of peace"

    "a quite slumber is left to breath."

    Great stuff as always! Love ya~Holly
