Hiding from the storm

OctPoWriMo Day 2 poem

Angry I left my home
never to return again,
grumbling and growling,
I walked a mile
thinking life with you
is nothing but futile.

Then the wind sighed,
the lightning flashed,
the thunder boomed,
I shivered and looked around,
I heard a creak and a groan
and a crash nearby.

Hide and seek I played
with the icy drops of rain,
looked I here and there
but all went in vain,
a single shed nor shelter
presented itself on my way.

Then I saw you coming from afar
and my anger did melt,
amidst both these storms,
I sobbed a happy smile,
there's no better hiding place
than your loving embrace.
