Everyone said she was like lightning;
not in the way that she too was
electric and beautiful
(even though she was)
but because you didn’t realize her
destructive powers until after
when the thunder came.
She left only scorched earth
and burned bridges
until you had to wonder
if it was all worth it
for a fleeting second
of that destructive beauty
or would that time have been better spent
running for cover
