Tidal Wave

ocean-918999__340Large waves crashing over me

Pounding on the shore

Drag me in their undertow

Deafened by their roar


Swimming in your ocean

Intoxicated by your presence

Spelunking through your caverns

Drowning in your essence

Quickly losing buoyancy

Sinking out of view

Water occupies my lungs

Weighed by anchor of you

Coastal winds picking up

I swim against the current

Caught up in your riptide

Attraction growing fervent

Drifting farther out to sea

Away from safety’s reach

Wishing for a life line

Or rescue boat to beach

It’s futile to fight a tidal wave

Its size is too immense

Overwhelmed by your profound effect

My feelings are so intense

If we cannot be together

Then release the ties that bind

And leave me lying on the shore

For another beachcomber to find
