Waves

~

There was only so much
you could take
at once
and so
you swallowed the sand
slowly,
bit by bit,
so you wouldn’t feel
the sharp-suffocating edge of it.

~

Each grain seemed
so final;
You never thought it’d come
pouring down,
filling up every crevice of you,
cutting through you,
skin to skin…

~

But don’t try
not to feel this;
face these tiny,
now-numerous shards
cutting at you
so deep
always with the knowledge…

~

Always knowing that each wave,
of happiness,
laughter,
of forgiveness,
salvation and love,
of moving on,
and living
will take away
the pain.
