The wind was howling like crazy
As I ran after Delilah.
I couldn't even hear myself anymore
Because the wind was too loud.
The waves crashing onto the beach
Were larger than I'd ever seen,
And I started getting really worried.
Delilah was heading
In the direction of the park,
Which was really stupid
Because the trees could crush us
If they fell,
Which they probably would.
When we reached the park,
I was only a few paces behind Delilah.
When I finally caught up with her,
I grabbed her shoulder
And whipped her around.
I shouted over the wind
I didn't bother giving her a sympathetic look
Because I knew sympathetic looks
Were the worst.
She shook uncontrollably under my hand,
Sobs wracking her body,
Tears streaking down her face.
"Presley broke up with me..."
Her chin trembling.
My heart breaking for her.
She must've felt horrible,
If it wasn't already obvious.
A crack of lightning
Flashed across the sky,
And I looked up,
Fear starting to creep up my spine.
"We have to get out of the storm!"
I tried to tell her,
But it was lost in the wind.
I pursed my lips,
Suddenly determined to get us out of there.
I yanked her hand,
Remembering the underground cellar
That was in the middle of town.
A refuge for everyone.
But of course
Because Delilah wasn't thinking straight,
She tried to pull herself away from me.
That's when the rain started to pour.
"What are you doing?!"
I screamed at her
Because I figured that was the only way
She would hear me.
"I don't want to go to the cellar!
Presley will be there."
I don't think she understood
The danger of our situation.
"Do you want to get us both killed!?"
I continued to try and pull her
My grip tightening
As the torrent of rain
Pounded on our backs.
She finally relented,
Letting me yank her
Unable to see anything.
a gust of wind
Dragged us down the street,
Too strong for us to stand our ground.
Fear clogged my throat,
Tears sliding down my cheeks.
How were we supposed to survive this?
We were in the middle of a hurricane!
If there's a God out there
I certainly hope
He saves us.
