Riding the Waves

Day 56

I was riding the ocean.

Soft, steady waves.

Slowly began to increase in tide.

I wavered a bit but held on tight.

I quickly learnt to tame them

They were pulling me deeper

Right into the middle

Rain poured down upon me

The roar and anger of the ocean

Shook my soul but I kept going

Then a deathly wave rose and engulfed me

I was deep inside, sinking within

Not afraid but embracing it.

Fighting it, until I rose again.


One thought on “Riding the Waves

  1. I felt you embracing the storm little by little until the very last line. It’s a sharp change of direction which also impacts the overall mood. Or, at least, in my heart/mind. I thought there’d be something more to the embracing, finding comfort in the initially intimidating depths. Maybe you could write a second portion for the ascending back to light, rising like a phoenix?
