What I live for...

today was up and down
today was my brain thinking things it shouldn’t,
then some coffee, some friends,
some alcohol and everything went fuzzy,
today was to hot, and not rainy enough.

but despite the cranky mood, i found a type of beauty that consumed me.

the weather.
the heat and muggyness,
evil in so many respects but beautiful
cause you could feel the electricity,
the potential of the storm coming.

and then the sky exploded in a clap of thunder
and split with a flash of lightning and
for 10 minutes the rain came down,
bringing the promise of a short relief.

the smell,
the sound
the feel of the water all around,
made me feel like i was in another world,
where nothing mattered except
what was happening in that moment.

walking home under a tree,
with a nest of baby birds
and life seemed perfect
for a moment.
and then i remembered.
so life isn’t perfect
and love isn’t perfect
but
sometimes the moments will catch you out
and you remember why your still here.
that despite the pain,
there is a charge of electricity
and the potential for 10minutes of bliss….its what i live for….

What I live for...
