gravitational potential energy
It is the calm before the storm
but calm is not peace.
this calm is tensed bodies and held
breaths and wide eyes- anticipation.
it is the sea, being reeled in like wire, like
fishing rods- but the sea is more human than
anything else and it comes crashing down,
down like age-old memory and white-hot anger.
but this is probably the moment before, the
fear and anxiety coiling up slowly like
snakes, waiting to strike, and the awareness of
the devastation to come hissing, mocking you, mingled with
the utter helplessness of the situation.
there is beauty to come, in the crash of
the wave, its fury mingled with blood, seeping through
the cracks with a horrific mixture of speed and
stealth, and in the motion of the chandelier, the glass'
pretty tinkling condescending like the jeer of
elusive deceit. this moment, however, is
more suffocating than breathtaking, but
mesmerising all the same.
A/N: Next chapter, kinetic energy (how original) coming soon. Yes, the lack of capitalisation was on purpose.
