two tides

breaking against the surf

wearing me down

whichever way – letting the waves ebb and

flow away, mostly leaving, never returning

or drowning in the selfishness of wanting love.

either ways the sea spray stings

as it courses down flesh ridges

 

and the least i can do for others

is not dragging them down with me

meanwhile the emptiness caves in

 

i think i’ve found the heart of the darkness:

i might know the answers but i don’t wish them to be true.
