when we meet,
i will introduce myself as a category five hurricane,
I only know how to destroy.
I will flood your heart with too much emotion,
and your roof will cave in because of my damaging winds,
and trust me,
I will come right through the roads of your life,
and you will not know how to continue on because there will be so much debris around you,
that you will have to call out for help.
so when I introduce myself,
I want you to leave town.
I want you to pack up your bags,
put your pets in the car,
and I want you to drive as far away as you can.
there will be one that will stay,
and when I say that I am a hurricane,
they will look me in the eyes and say,
“I am a meteorologist,
and I have studied the winds and rains
of hurricanes for as long as I can remember,
and I will stay,
I will experience the floods
and the caved in roofs,
because my whole life has been lived
to encounter you”
