Lightning

Lightning


Flashes upon flashes,


It shines outside my window,


It's silver beam in the shape of a sash,


I hide beneath my pillow.


It's shining light continues to glare,


I squeeze my pillow even more,


The shine is as bright as a flare,


It's like the light is off to war.


I call this shining thing lightning,


For it's the bright flash that I see,


It's glare ever so slightly brightening,


The light shining right into me.


I clench my eyes shut,


I squeeze my pillow tight,


The fear feeling like I was punched in the gut,


My body shining from all of the light.


I feel my body jerk to the side,


As I feel the light brighten to the extreme,


It's too late now to hide,


As the 18-wheeler rams right into me.
