Silent Lightning

The flash of blinding light
An angry god, manifests his
Fury into the purest form
Of destruction

“Thor is angry! Boom boom boom!”
If only they knew the pain that he took
To forge each bolt, to craft them with
The utmost care and precision

Behind each flash
A strange silence echoes
No thunderclap, just
Silent lightning

Each and every strike
Of the white-hot crack
Accompanies a tear
Streaking down his cheek
Sizzling like the air
On that summer’s eve

Nobody questions why
There is no sound to this
Natural light show

A painful sigh
Only the memory of a kiss
And a chance to grow
