I Let You In

I let you in prepared
for you I pried open rusted
door pushed up clouded
window let fresh light inside
my dark cellar

you the tornado here gone
in the blink of my eyes
blinded by the aftermath I sit
where your winds carried my head
in tattered hands contemplating

the fall of tears releasing
raging screams or to lie
quietly and waste away
amongst the ruins you left

*Day One April PAD Challenge. Prompt: Write a poem about what “got you here.”
