In The Calm

In the calm before the storm,
Nothing’s lively, Nothing’s warm.
Feeling frightened,
Feeling torn,
In the calm before the storm.

Before the storm, in the calm,
Neglected, distracted. Something wrong.
They’re complacent,
But don’t belong,
Before the storm, in the calm.

In the calm the storm before,
Was something else, something more.
Feeling peaceful, feeling sure,
In the calm the storm before.

In the storm, the calm before.
This was it and nothing more.
Those survived
Said nevermore,
In the storm, the calm before.

And that was how, in the storm,
They forgot how times before,
History cloaked,
Willfully ignored.
That’s how it was, their last storm.
