I am here, I am the storm

Andrew Charles Forrest

I am here, I am the storm



You’ll notice, that it’s not so warm

For I am here, I am the storm

Listen to me, feel my pride

There is nowhere you can hide.


I will flood your senses, so

There will be nowhere you can go

To escape my fearsome roar

Below the water, or the tor.


I will find out where you’ve gone

And I will find you all alone

I really don’t k now why you run

Or close your eyes to pray for sun.


He’ll be here another time

But for now, your thoughts are mine

Fall upon your knees to me

And I shall drift away to sea,


For I will have achieved my goal

To see inside your pale soul

To see your darkness fears come true

As I shine the dark on you.


If you fear me, I know not why

For it wasn’t me who made you cry

You mustn’t be afraid you see...

It was you, who made me.

    Good one - enjoyed reading this.

  • Fay Slimm.

    Love the personification in this clever rhyme - I can relate closely to this one Andrew as I live alongside the Cornish coastline and know the power of a storm. Great read.

    I'll always loved that motto. Fear the storm? I AM THE STORM!! So many great lines in this one. Plus I've always loved storms. Great post! I'm sorry I'm just discovering your work. But on the other hand, yay, I've discovered your work!
