I just want to break

like a wave

and run upon your shores,

soaking into you,

then back

into the endless sea.


Building up energy,

rolling back into myself,

releasing completely,

until there is nothing left,

and I am gone

like the tide

for a while.


Carrying a weight

is not a way to keep time.

I’d rather give mine away

and find another life.

Spread out on the beach

under an open sky,

touching the land

with my hands,

the sea with my feet,

and the sky with my eyes.


I don’t want anything

to remain.

I just want to break

like a wave,

and cover you

before I’m gone.



HG – 2020
