Summer storm

skies 003

Dark summer sky

Shelters, ignites a first caress

Dark summer sky

Drowns with its storm a lover’s sigh

A kiss of rain and tenderness

And promises of happiness

Dark summer sky


Dark summer sky

Parted by a moment’s madness

Dark summer sky

A shadowed echo of your cry

Seeking forgiveness and redress

Your tears a storm of bitterness

Dark summer sky


Dark summer sky

Watching storm clouds pass in sadness

Dark summer sky

Ask the eternal question ‘why?’

Damning your heart’s capriciousness

That condemns you to loneliness

Dark summer sky
