Tidal waves

I dreamed of times of lying in the grass

and the rain was falling on either side of me

where the sun fell upon my face

and I spread my arms to where the rain

gently fell upon my fingertips.

I laid like this a while, as time was slowly slipping past

and the air was softly blowing words to me

carrying me far away to a place I was glad to go

where I was a tidal wave crashing into everything.

God, and then there were tenterhooks dragging into me

trying like the damned to bring me down

and the pain was scraping and tearing me

as I scrambled and climbed desperate to be free.

I grabbed into the muddied grass and held on tight

and I breathed through the waves of time crashing over me

anxious for the rain to pass over me

and I felt myself rising higher and higher

taking everything I could see and burying it inside of me

and once I was full with destroying everything

I vanished back into the horizon just a girl upon the grass

the rain on either side of me  and anxious to see

what another day will bring to me.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
