The Storm

For months I have been trying to move forward
But you kept pulling me back in
Like a strong tornado coming right at me
With wind gusts faster than I can blink
I run from you as fast as I can
Trying not to look back at you
I hear you calling my name
I look away ignoring it this time
Stopping a short while later to catch my breath
Realizing that you're no longer behind me
I close my eyes as I fight back tears
I am swamped with all the emotions you made me feel
The good, the bad, the ugly all flooded me like a rain storm
I can't fight the tears any longer
For what seems like hours I cry
I open my eyes
Wipe the tears off my face
Seeing the sunshine after the storm
Reminding myself that no storm lasts forever

It can't rain all the time...
