Poem: Storm Clouds

I see you
deeper in the darkness
searching for a doorway
afraid to face the formless
silhouettes outside

The ghostly veil
your shattered soul, pursued
by those bitter winds, fragile
wings fractured by the storm
clouds circling above

Turn around
and knock
on the open door, step inside
no need to speak, just sit
by the open fire, a little solace
from that long black road

A silent hand
a secret
place to lay your head
somewhere to hide
and wait
until the storm clouds pass
