Grey’s Anatomy: Shock to the System
Lightning doesn’t often strike twice. It’s a once in a lifetime thing. Even if it feels like the shock is coming over and over again. Eventually the pain will go away, the shock will wear off. And you start to heal yourself. To recover from something you never saw coming. But, sometimes the odds are in your favor. If you’re in just the right place at just the right time, you can take a hell of a hit. And still have a shot at surviving.

A summer rain is passing over And it feels like a dream I could run and look for shelter But you hold onto me I'm under your skies I'm caught in your eyes Don't you know you stop the room And all that I can see is you I'm standing where the lightning strikes I know this doesn't happen twice You must be my once in a lifetime, in a lifetime You must be my once in a lifetime Hi, these are some song lyrics I think of for rucus & it's titled once in a lifetime by Landon Austin.

Thank you I have noted it ❤️❤️

Lightning Strikes (Not Once But Twice) from Sandinista! by the Clash

Beginning in the late ‘90s, once or twice a year, astronomers operating the telescope at the Parkes observatory in New South Wales, Australia would pick up mysterious radio signals. These signals were known as perytons, described in a recent report as “millisecond-duration transients of terrestrial origin.” The researchers believed the perytons were linked to atmospheric activity such as lightning strikes, and they held this belief for around 17 years, until this year, when they installed a new receiver to monitor interference, The Guardian reports. The actual source of the perytons? A microwave.

Light
That’s what I am without you
Like someone tore the weights off my chest and screamed “TAKE A BREATH AND A LOOK AROUND YOU’VE BEEN SUFFOCATING FOR SO LONG”
And for once I believe them.

Who hurt you so badly that all you can do now is take?
Who tore you limb from limb and pieced you back together into some monstrous Frankenstein
Capable only of ruin
It’s like you are a flash of lightning
Except you will strike in the same place twice
No, a million times
Over and over
A mess of burnt flesh and peeling rubber
This is what you do
This is what you’re made of.
