The Calm Before the Storm

The most fearsome weather
Is the calm before a storm.
As still as it is,
There is nothing less peaceful,
And as calm as it appears,
There is nothing more chaotic.
Lightning’s plunge to the earth
Could not make my heart beat faster
Than the absence of life
That occurs right before.
The bright illumination
That lasts for only a moment
Could not stir more panic in my stomach
Than the dimness that envelopes
The world just before.
Even the crashing thunder
Could no sooner draw out my screams
Than the absolute silence
That buzzes in my ears
Before the true storm hits
And I have nothing left to fear.
