Step into the tide
and let the waves crash
over your tarnished being
and drown the demons
your desiccated soul.
The crowd of emptiness
welcomed the onslaught
and all you could was allow
them to encroach on you.
Find the sea and step
into the tide–
the water will wash
the afflictions away.
This is the first poem I’ve written in awhile because I haven’t had much time to write or think about things to write. So, it’s not my best but it’s something. I didn’t want to stop writing and forget that I love it so much. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a few more out this week. I hope you enjoy!

I think it’s great! 🙂 And not just because I understand that feeling when you just can’t find time to write! 😦
Wish you more words in coming weeks!

The quality of what you write doesn’t count, what counts is that you release your passion and allow it to run and just be free. 🙂
Here’s to more words spilled onto paper this week, cheers! 🙂
I think it’s great that you’re posting even when you feel it isn’t the best. I feel the same, and often dOn’t post when I think it isn’t the best ever. So kudos to that and inspiration! 🙂
