he knew the storms would never leave her,
she was a vast ocean that buried shipwrecks.
she knew the storms would never leave her,
how could they?
he had them too — those hostile storms,
but he was the warmest, calmest refuge of a day she’ll have ever had.
and she’d always bring him the softest rain and the sunshine altogether.
they knew the storms would never leave,
they knew that things were fleeting too.
