Stormcloud

::Stormcloud::

I can feel the storm inside of me
Threatening once again to break free
It’s churning my cloud of self-loathing
So depression is all I see
It holds a match to the fuse of my rage
It dangles a noose at my throat

I can sense a storm brewing deep inside my soul
The storm that threatened my life so very long ago
It’s casting shadows on my fear to drive away the light
It is sending raindrops to my heart
To drive me to the night

I can feel the storm inside of me
Threatening once again to break free
I can feel myself smile again
As I let my spirit free

Let the stormclouds come my way
Let them drown me in rain
I am the fallen angel
And Stormcloud is my name

I care not for the world of light
I care not for dreams
My storm is coming to take me away
I will leave you with my screams

    “I care not for the world of light
    I care not for dreams
    My storm is coming to take me away
    I will leave you with my screams”
