Struck By Lightning

Out of nowhere it came, surprised I was for I didn’t see it coming

Not a sound it made ; not a buzz, not a humming

It took a while before I could make sense of what happened

For a moment I lost consciousness as my knees quivered and weakened

The Earth shook and I saw the spark of light

The tree turned to dust and everything remained still that night

I felt numb as a surge of electricity flowed through me

I was a bit scared since for a brief second I could not see

Shock, then paralysis swallowed me whole

I felt my body separate from my soul


It can be quite frightening

to be struck by lightning

At least that’s how I feel

Now that you’ve made me fall for you
