Love is a hurricane the cracked Texas soil was not ready for — this overwhelming flooding spilling over, leaking into houses through their cracked roofs. Waves decimating the most delicate wildflowers, overcoming the sea-walls and seeping into broken hearts. Lovers dumping buckets of water out of cars, homes, and minds. Wind sirens whirling, Evacuate! Get to safety. Love is a hurricane. It is not safe here, Houston.
