The storm crashed through the valley
Heaving tree branches and debris to-and-fro
Until there seemed to a charged pause
Negative particles madly dash from sky to ground
Determined to find a place to rest
Except that outbreak from the heavens causes heated air to flee the scene
Resulting in colder air to rush in and clap at the drama of it all
People milled around the in-ground pool enjoying their cocktails
Until two voices dominated the soundscape with their disagreement
Suddenly silence crashed into existence
However the splashing soon followed
Mary was always on the go.
Oblivious to sleep or the need for food.
The way she pushed herself was amazing to watch.
Of course, she could not keep this up forever.
Really it wasn’t surprising when she crashed and burned.
All the things were out to get him
Now his wife was in on the mission
Xenon headlights broke the darkness in front of his speeding car
If he could just get across the state line
Eventually, they would give up their chase
Then flashing lights stabbed him from behind
Yanking the wheel hard to the right he crashed through the guardrail
All of a sudden he was in free fall
That was when it finally hit him
They couldn’t follow him here
All they could do was watch
Calm now he accepted the oncoming water with a smile
Knowing he had finally escaped
