Tidal Wave

Tidal Wave

a Poem by Raquel Swann

You’re a tidal wave,

Unsafe to be sure

Shore, standing

Awaiting your crash,

Dash, running won’t

get me away,

At Bay, I’m helpless

So why do I stay,

Say, so many things

I want to get out,

Shout, in my mind,

All I think of is you

Cruel, I lay here in

the shadow of your wake,

Forsake, there is

Nothing left to take,

Fake? For what I

hear in your voice,

Choice, I tried to move on,


when push comes to shove,

Above, you curl, I watch


in the name of love.
