What: We will have a one hour skirmish to write to a prompt.*

This was my prompt, so I have no one to blame but myself for this absolute Turdy McTurdblossom of a crappy romance novel lyrics. By V2 I just decided to go all in with the bad. I will neither confirm, nor deny, the existence of double entendres here! Some of you need Jesus. JUST! SAYING!

(HINT: It's okay to laugh. This was meant to be cheesy! Let's face it - most hurricanes think they're a Category 5 when in reality they're barely a Tropical Depression. Wink )


Mmmm, feel the warm breeze blow
Mmmm, barometer low
Waves are cresting as I sink into the sands
As I sink… into your hands

I'm caught up in the eye of your hurricane
In a wall of clouds and pouring rain
Like a storm surge rising I can't contain
How I feel in the eye
Of your hurricane

The energy between us rapidly intensifies
Like the thunder in these stormy skies
The windows rattle when my name I hear you call
When your Category 5 makes landfall


Meeting on the ocean
Tropical convergence
Caught in circular motion
Passionate resurgence
Building, churning
There's no dissipation tonight

Very well done!! That's one tempting storm. Love the "windows rattling" and "when your Category 5 makes landfall"! Excellent lyric.
