I am paraphrasing, of course. "My only fear is that when they are turned to loving they will find we are turned to hating." -Reverand Msimangu, Cry, The Beloved Country (a book by Alan Paton)


It rolls in like a wave on the shore

and breaks before its time.

The sand in my head doesn’t know

what hit it or why it started so suddenly.


The thoughts that accompany the wave

form the white foam of the sea.

They cloud my judgement and

turn my brain into mush.


No one seems to notice that a

whirlpool has begun inside my head.

I can keep my composure and

sit in my room all night

letting it swallow me whole.


This always happens.
The waves never cease.
