The Tide

Unspoken words

Unexpressed feelings

Threaten to explode inside my mind.

All the things I 

Should’ve

Would’ve

Could’ve done

If not for me.

I’m scared.

Scared that opening the floodgates

Will wash away everyone who

Swore to stay rooted forever

But cracked under the force of the tide.

So I set up dams and reservoirs

Redirecting the water

So all that touches the trees

Are gentle rivers

That meanders to a forgotten ocean.
