The Sea As Myself - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

a tempest
the day
we parted ways

the torrent
sea played out
my distress
every crevice
that stores
those sterling
of love
now swelling
with frust
and fears

i steadied
to make my wish
to the moon
for your comeback

its swirling
shimmering dance
in the sea
my only refuge
from being
in desperation

this tempest
that would
and again

the unceasing waves
pound the beach
