Calm Waters


Tears in my soul
Welling up like an ocean
At high tide
Engulfing my heart
In a wave
Of emotions
Submerging me
In a deluge
Of feelings
Flooding my mind
Drowning all sense
But the dam
Of reason
Holds back the torrent
Till it bursts in an
Outpouring
Of grief
Drenched,
I let myself
Be swept away
By a raging
River in spate
Which spends itself
In a surge of rapids
Until I float
On the calm
Waters of peace
