The Sullen Tide Rush

A sullen tide
rushed upon thy rock-happiness
looking at him
running, hiding
I want his head
regained trust as a pond after a rainstorm
a sullen tide
rust again

Sullen Tide rushes,
soaked rocked-happiness

He came up
without me knowing
I surprised
He asked if I was doing fine
I responded better
I forgot
he reopened scar

Sullen Tide rushes,
soaked rocked-happiness


crying, hating,
in a kingdom of Tumult
Cut, cut, cut into pieces
caught in a sullen tide
Hatred overcomes once again
Like a rush of sullen tide

A sullen tide rushes upon thy rocked-happiness
