Lightning bumps into thunder,
raindrops disturbs deep slumber.
False illusions dance to pain,
dreams of memories remain.

Feel so shaken, drenched in sweat,
try to steady panicked breath,
body sleeps, soul wide awake,
solid visions seem so fake.

Sparks of passion, wrapped in beams,
unchain everlasting screams.
Gain control, no other choice,
hear vibrations guide dull voice.

Faith lights up an unsure mind,
stirs up hope, once hard to find.
Sprinkles warmth in fearful hearts,
so this moment marks the start.

New blank canvas fills the brain,
pure and white without a stain.
Imagination holds ink,
revelations help days sync.

Insecurities surrender,
inspired by gleeful splendor,
tears and canvas quickly dry,
so wishes could promptly fly.
