Aquarian Heart

This aching anxiousness

is holding me far too tight

I am searching for peace and aching for quiet —

the type of silence

that can wash the noise away.

My soul is homesick for the ocean,

and my heart is crying out for the waves.

Made to Drown

IMG_7570

I tried
bridging the shores,
tried plotting our course,
two different souls
going wherever the wind blows

but my survival was tied
to a sinking ship,
your bloodthirsty words
leaving my defenses
slashed to ribbons

So, I learned that some structures
are made to come tumbling down,
all that was left
now floating with death

I guess some hearts were made to drown
