Sometimes my voice crackles with all the suppressed screams withheld within, and my head explodes pounding with the din of my own internal cries. Then suddenly the winds change, they become cooler and more powerful. They blow across the heavens, drawing, gathering, and heralding the coming of the storm. My clothes blow against the strong winds, my face turns upward my senses ready to receive the heavens tears. My hand raises up and wipes clean my own tears, my heart pounding in anticipation pumps blood to my body, my fingers tingling with the rush of adrenaline slowly clench and unclench. At that moment I stand on the edge, ready to dive into the abyss of nothingness. The sky thunders and breaks open into a torrent of rain, the clouds break apart and unload their heavy burdens feeding a hungry earth below. The raindrops rush down to my open mouth and splash across my face, my laughter is lost in the thunderous roar and flash of the lightening. I jump into the abyss and falling in that moment I am peace, I am tranquility and I am lost for no longer do I search. In that constant downpour, all things are halted and in that moments respite granted by the grace of God, where I find peace, in that peace I find hope, hope that carries me to the next day.
I risk exposure for a few moments longer reveling in the moment as heavy drops pelt against my body, soaking me down to my very soul. Then sadly, I turn and go indoors, and stare in longing silence into the misty grayness. The continuos downpour shuts out all other noises, its consistency, only broken by the occasional roar of thunder, soothes my soul. My eyes close and asleep, my breathing slows my heart content…for a while.
