Tag: above



High above the turmoil
is where I sit
Leaning against stone
Cool and comforting
Calming the chaos
Clamoring in my head

The stillness soothing 
Slowing time 
Slowing heartbeats
Breathing deeply
The crisp, clean air
sends oxygen back to my brain

Below the tempest brews 
in torrents of anger
Its waters boiling with rage
Thrashing against sharp rocks
Swallowing all in its wake
Taking no prisoners
