Tidal Wave

You touched me.

Ripples greeted my skin;

A gentle caress the wind couldn’t touch.

We were too close.

Your eyes peered into mine--

I looked away,

But you drew me back

like water pulsing on the shore.

And now I can’t think

of what I might’ve saw in those eyes

that held me captive for so long.

You became shallow.

I could no longer swim freely

In the depths of your arms

because there wasn’t enough substance

to keep me afloat.

When I treaded water,

You let me sink.

My chest was screaming

for you to let me in

But you wouldn’t--

And I drowned.

My lifeless body came to you

and you never shed a tear.

You just looked at me and whispered

“Forever and always dear”

My tidal wave--

My tsunami--

You destroyed me to the core.

Yet I would still give anything

to breathe you in once more.
