In your arms

In your arms

Seeing woes and dismay,
the sky turned his look to the ground
and surly and gloomy, shouted
to the dancing clouds: ” Disappear! “

The air froze still and only couple of branches
shivered, expecting the cold to destroy them,
to overthrow them with dampness,
with stickiness and filth.

The light blue became unpleasant gray and
the stars scared, decided to escape.
The roar of thunder, the snap of light, the wet stain
after one drop of rain, you hear: ” Be afraid! “

But I’m not, not tonight. I feel how the wind blows,
right through stone walls. I see water pouring down,
I hear the ghastly noise bringing together earth and sky.
In your arms though, everything is faraway and I am safe …

    Awwww… This is a very very touching poem… I love hugs and embraces! I would really do anything just to be in between my lover’s arms… :) Very nicely written, Blaga! ;) Love your poetry!!! Long live!

    This one is sweet! I love that feeling, being with someone and being in their embrace, and feeling like you can take on everything. I absolutely adore pathetic fallacy, especially when it is used for nature/weather – I think it is one of the best ways to set the tone or to make a point while still being subtle. A really amazing job!

    Love the poem Blaga. I love rainy days and this poem makes me want to go out back and just watch the rain fall all over. Holding someone during a storm is a very powerful time together. Whether caressing your lover or comforting a scared child, it evokes powerful emotions.
