A Storm is Coming

When I close my eyes, I feel a rumbling in my chest

A thumping that feels electric, shocking my veins.

When I close my eyes I feel a burning in my soul

A flame that won’t extinguish, nor do I want it to.

There is this warmth that smells like rain

And sunflowers, caressing my thoughts.

I close my eyes because I know a storm is coming

Because right now...I’m too calm.
