i've had a nightmare.
when i wake up in the middle of the night,
there is a thunderstorm coming.
i'm a little bit shaken still, but
i throw open the curtains to watch.
i can see the sky growing darker
with churning louds
glowing in the orange haze
of streetlights flickering out across the city.
i can feel the windows rattle,
and just hear the thunder.
i count the seconds
as they get shorter, and shorter.
the house shakes with its great roars
the sky sparkles in a ripple of light
the trees bow to its power
the driveway becomes a waterfall
the dark becomes a symphony
and the street becomes a river
as the rain begins to fall.
i shut my curtains
and lie back in bed.
i am lulled back to sleep,
comforted by knowing that bigger things are out there
than the demons in my nightmares.

I like. :)

I recently had a nightmare. Freaked me the hell out, and I'm not quite sure I'm right from it yet. My mama wants to know what happened. I say no way. Any dream can be forgotten.


Wow, you really read all that? Danggg. Props! =]

Well, I see you've just had the imponderable joy of stumbling onto the blog of an 18-year-old girl who can't really describe herself in 500 words or less, such as in little text boxes like these. She didn't intend her blog to really become so much like her online diary (she was hoping it would have an interesting, helpful purpose to serve the world and all) but blogging is just kind of fun. This girl's a bit of an environmentalist and a full-tilt vegetarian, a bit of an artist who can't draw, a bit of a writer who can't find time to read, and a completely hopeless romantic. She enjoys white chocolate, coloring, wading in creeks, music, Doctor Who, and speaking in third-person when it's unnecessary like this.

Now go read the rest of the blog and meet her, if you like of course. :)
