Driftwood


Adrift in a sea of love-
Kissed by the ocean and sun.
The gentle waves caress me now
In the shadow of the storms to come.

Cast upon the rocky shore
By the winds of released emotions.
While unrelenting waves of pain
Come crashing in upon me.
I'm drowning in a torrent of tears
As the storm reaches its crescendo.

Then as the winds have long ceased.
The waters calmed.
You'll find me exposed on the beach
With my edges smoothed and my scars bleached.

Waiting...
Waiting for my beauty to be found.
