Waves

Intense, a tsunami.

Start slow, build up:

Then crash, destroy,

Breaking– capsizing:

Aware,

But paralyzed, numb

Until the tipping point:

Fill, consume, suffocate

Wholeness broken,

Holes created:

Filling, drowning

Struggling

To stay above the water.


Fragmented

Waves so intense–

Always causing an earthquake:

Ground shaken, livelihood destroyed.

Chaotic, panicked, unstable.

Soul broken by the magnitude.

Entity lost,

Turned to rubble.

Damage tended,

Rebuilt, though never the same

Some pieces forever lost:
