Following closely, but unconnected
Events unfolding , with differences detected
Promise was made , no change accepted
Following closely, the rule expected
A thousand years , silently neglected
Warm and cold , to a soul injected
Breaking society , a love infected
Shattering dreams , to feel protected
Awaking now , life’s end projected
Disease runs fast , our love selected
future focus slipping
the boulders of past return
the scent of completion thinning
vision of reality’s burn
unwanted opinions exploding
a lightning strike that’s near
souls in the back ground whisper
I turn they disappear
struggle without retention
movement with no path
acts of violence filtered
consumption of your wrath
the sky is always burning
anxiety at it’s peak
emotion keeps erupting
heartbeat getting weak
I never had an extreme thought before that night. I stood like a statue in a winter storm, a blustery whirlwind of thoughts racing around me as I couldn’t move.
That morning was like no other , every ritual was followed as any other day. The drive to work had appeared to take for ever but was also event free. I parked in my usual spot and exited the car ,as I turned to walk into the building a women ran up to me grabbing my arm pulling me between two cars. Expressions of fear emitted from her shaking body. Her tear stained face looked as if she hadn’t slept that night. I was looking in all directions for her attackers but there wasn’t a soul around . As I looked back she had disappeared, freakishly I looked around but didn’t see a thing. I rushed into the building telling no one of my sights.
I strolled in the doors and things inside were different. The smell was of burnt electricity , almost gut wrenching I covered my mouth and nose as I slowed to a crawl spying in every direction. I moved slowly down the hallway in the direction of the elevator . I peered in one office door to see if a friend had made it in . The office was well lit as I drifted slowly in . I called out a name but got nothing in return. A loud crash spilled out of the hallway as I turned to look a voice called my name from the office across the hall. My skin crawling I edged towards the door…..
To be continued ….
Thanks for reading , Please stay tuned for more…
I’ve been thinking here lately about new year resolutions and how we put in needed stress on ourselves . We often shoot for the stars and wish upon unrealistic goals that can’t or won’t be met. For me it’s one day at a time with a few short term goals… It keeps my stress level a lot lower.
Another thing I’ve been thinking about lately is regret. I hate it when people say I have no regrets in the way I lived my life…… Well …. I guess they have lived a perfect life without bad decisions . I do have regrets … I have had things such as relationships I held dearly that ended due to my actions or bad decision making… This in my opinion is one of the hardest things to get over …. For some of my regrets I don’t think I ever will
In a snow filled sky
My dreams are
To loose regrets
As I was reading Facebook looking for information from friends on news of the storm .. I was really put back at what I seen. More than half of the people I knew were complaining about the power situation . I thought to myself …wow.. these professionals have been assembled from all over New England to come here and assist our own with repairing the damage in a precise manner . These people risk it all to insure power is repaired at the soonest time possible. They are the unsung hero’s of this the worst storm in a decade in northern New York. We all need to applaud the job they do for us all.
Some things with take a lot longer to repair…. Damage to trees with take years to repair… An ice storm will decimate the lands..as I’m writing this the freezing rain moves in to the third day. Trees have been pushed beyond their limits , weak limbs have already fallen off . Walking around outside the only sound you hear is snapping and cracking of tree limbs, also the constant noise coming from the fallen branches that just can’t hold on any further. The Ice being so thick on top of the snow one can walk on top without falling through. I can only imagine what has happen to the animals in the woods as all food has been encapsulated in a thick layer of this frozen precipitation..
An ice storm is such a delicate thing.. conditions on more than one level have to be perfect, now for an Ice event of this magnitude to happen is just a freak of nature..
