Would I live my life over?

I've lived my life
in the days of tremendous apprehension.
thunder strikes abound
slicing my life
into those whom I care for
but have no reason to harm
with truth.

Thunder once amused me
staring up into the clouds on my back
tornado sirens sounding
shredding the silence
but I knew no difference
the terrible strikes hit
with reality.

These are wasted days
absent of affection
