Unaware at first, the screams she heard were her own,
the tornado's horrific, wailing vacuum
jerked the air from Linda's lungs,
inhaled the sounds erupting from her mouth,
replaced them with a petrifying, gasping terror.
Such sudden, shocking force of nature
stalks and pounces, in timeless seconds
sucks years and lives up into nothing.
Yet, with no less ruthless savagery,
handsome Lucifer quietly,
coldly chisels daily on the unseen cracks
within the hearts of every living soul;
and though hidden, this stealthy creep of supernature
and his relentless ravaging
puts to shame the devastation
of so-called, natural disasters.
