Cleansing

Clouds 
dark
foreboding

Fat 
and heavy with rain

Thunder 
rumbles a threat

Deep inside
my chest 

Electricity
in my marrow 

A scream 
of lightening 
sets the sky 
ablaze 

Eyes turn 
to the heavens

The sky 
weeps tears 

Engorged sky 
spills over
salty and hot

Pray for 
cleansing
 
Deliverance 

A torrent
washes over me
