Not Tonight

Leaves lifted into a spin around me…

The wind and rain raged.

I screamed into the storm, “You will not have me!”

Lightning flashed, and the thunder replied mocking me. I shivered from the cold drops on my skin like darts.

Sirens howled, too close to ignore. Trees bent to touch the ground and leaves lifted into a spin around me.

Papa took my hand and ran toward the shelter.

I saw the twister bearing down on top of us, just as the door closed.

With it now locked, we settled in the back and lit a candle.

You will not have me, not tonight, I thought.
