Lightning strike



I get scared when lightning strikes

I think it will strike me

and when it does

I get scared it won’t strike again

I never really get over the shock

or tingle or thrill

even when it hurts

I keep searching for meaning in it

asking why it happened

and wonder if it happens again

will it feel any better

knowing deep down it will

always be the same

always hurt

and I will always miss it
