The soft glow of the

firelight is warming

The embers burning hot,

heating the surface of my skin.

The rain outside softly

pinging against the house

Soothing my nerves as I lay

safe and warm within.

Your chest gently rising

and falling

with each breath you

take, slow and even

whilst you slumber.

A branch is skating along

the rooftop

As the wind picks up

with the building storm;

A mirror of my emotions

as I contemplate my life.

Chaos beginning to

rage without

Tranquility strangely

settled within.
