my mind is like the ocean
a constant wave of emotion
one minute it’s a calming tide of contentment,
and the next there’s a storm crashing onto shore
begging to sweep someone under with it

beneath my rippling tides are countless shipwrecks,
memories floating about,
lonely thoughts keeping each other company
sharing the stories they’ve collected over time.
things i thought i drowned farther than any depth
that not even i could ever dive back into,
slowly making their back up to the surface

this ocean has an ever changing pattern.
there is never true peace or calm here.

my ocean may never harbor tranquility.
