The threat of gale force winds looms
Ocean waves rising higher and higher
Rain battering against the windows
The glass doors shaking and rattling
Safe inside. But my soul is asleep.
Stepping out of the warmth and safety.
I stand in the rain, letting it pour over me. Oh so refreshing. Cleansing.
The wind now forcing me to hold onto the railing. It got worse so quick. Fear spreading through me. I used to be afraid of the wind. But then, the fear turns into exhilaration.
Ice cold. Shivering.
I stand there until I can’t feel my body anymore. Numb on the outside.
But deep down inside I feel alive again.
