Rising Waters

soft rolling waves
lap the shoreline,
suddenly crash rapidly upon you.

such tenderness used to comfort,
now makes you recoil

from all that you
managed to bear and remain to
endure, still you dig deep

into the sand
to push it away.

into yourself.
a shift in the tide was
not part of the plan;

moving to the city
to be part of the
scene, only to find

you’re constantly sinking.
