Restless

Rain strikes the pavement
Puddles form shallow in my mind
Every drop’s perfect circle ripples,
Outward like lost memories

Clouds loom deep and dark
Lost in the darkness of thoughts
that storm and rage in my head;
Chaos that never calms

The thunder roars in my heart
Pale lightning streaks across my arm.
I am restless as the sky.
