Papa's Stormy House

A door is not enough.
 
You against Papa:
a maelstrom
I can only
watch
and wait out
as lightning rages.
 
The screams of
every
single
atom
in the body are
forced apart and
plastered back together
again.
 
Still, the sky is intact
like your boyish smile.
Yet,
behind eyelids
the fissures
always
rip through –
pulsating,
blinding –
soloudsohard
    so much.
 
The thunder hurts, but
I wait. The storm
will come. It is
churning, brewing.
 
It boils
now; I stay
because it’s this weather
I’ve learnt to navigate,
to brave,
to come out
unscathed.
