A Twig on a Wave

I can’t stop crying today
Everything is a trigger
The night clings to the day
The tea leaves misbehave
Verses don’t speak my name
Right now the sun’s making
patterns that aren’t right and
I can’t stop crying today.

The river runs back
Refusing to fall into the sea
There are things to forget
The blur of what was said
A fragile heart, the way it wept
Hours vast like the ocean
You, a pause on the horizon
I, a twig on a wave and
I can’t stop crying today.

Every wave hits a barrier
Twists, spins away
Most days I do okay
But right now the tide’s making
whirlpools that suck me in and
I can’t stop crying today.
