Tidal Waves

Tidal waves pull me under
and I haven’t the strength
to swim any longer.
But I can’t give up.

  1. I love how this poem can be interpreted in more than one way because of the ambiguity of the element causing the drowning. For me, I read it as an optimistic outlook despite drowning in mental illness. Love it.

  2. Deep breath….relax…ride it out. Pretty soon your head will pop up again in calm, shallow turquoise water, a cold Medelo Negra stuck in the sand waiting.

    1. You’d be surprised as what you can do when you try. I’ve been working on these micropoems for about a year now. My earlier ones were terrible (inner critic hard at work). The key is to keep trying. 😊
