not with that thunder

take me somewhere,
not with that thunder,
not where we may run
into the past, but
where we can forever
preserve the future.

no expectations,
just laughter and
walking demonstrations
of the changes we've made,
somewhere with a view,
somewhere with me and you.

there are things that
I always thought would
haunt us like lightning,
but please believe with me
that we can slowly go
wherever we choose.
