Dark Tides



I am waiting by the shore,
watching dark tides fold in
I watch them clamber on top

of one another as if
they vie to reach something


My soul mirrors these waters
Torrent yet smooth
vast diamonds
violet pockets of life


My mouth whispers a name into
the night
and the sea carries it back
and the clouds whisp it up
and transmutes it into rain,
which kisses your skin


Do you ever feel it?

I remember reading this while

I remember reading this while incognito

and it stuck to me

a thread woven of an essence.

Very much enjoyed in various depths.



Your comment was awesome Ms. Ashley.

Vibrant eyes you have.

god kid I love you! this poem amde me feel so much desperation, like the feeling you hve when you've got it, whatever it was, a perfect friendship, soulmate lover, etc etc, and then you are lossing it and you have no idea why, its just there, looking the same but feeling different, in the palm of your hands yet slipping through your fingers, and all you can do is watch


loved it

Much Love
