Lightning Bugs/I Suppose

The lightning bugs

Are out

To watch the lightning show

Something deep in my gut

Aches and groans

Calling the thunder

I suppose.

 

I rise early

From a sleepless night

Waiting on rain

And

A light show.

 

The lightning bugs

Are out

To watch the lightning show

Something deep in my gut

Aches and groans

Calling the thunder

I suppose.

 

From inside this dark house

I listen to the leaves rustle

Wait for branches to fall

Wish this ache in my gut

Away.

 

The lightning bugs

Are out

To watch the lightning show

Something deep in my gut

Aches and groans

Calling the thunder

I suppose.

 

Dark theaters

Rain storms

Early morning light

Wrap me up tight

Don’t let the bed bugs bite.

 

The lightning bugs

Are out

To watch the lightning show

Something deep in my gut

Aches and groans

Calling the thunder

I suppose.
