Rogue Wave This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


A wave of masculinity
Washes over
You
You feel
Powerless
Kicking and flailing
With all your strength
Against the current
Left utterly
Helpless
Against something
So much more
Powerful
Than yourself
splashes of cologne
Envelop your senses
Waiting for the end
For this wave to break
To finally emerge
From the
darkness
To take that long awaited
Breath
A wish to run
A wish to win
for freedom
For anything
Anything but this
Anywhere but here
Keep fighting, you tell yourself
Soon it will be
Over
You'll be
Free
When the crest finally hits that sandy shore
When he's through with you
Who are you?
Just a girl
Powerless against
The waves
