(1) the tide is coming in each wave pushing it farther farther and the waves are growing bigger bigger bigger until they seem to engulf the sea
(2) the waves will erase what was left in the sand like my mind will forget insignificant moments. I will write in the sand the words I won't speak aloud, and when the waves come I will watch them disappear letter by letter, hoping the waves will take my mind with them. my tears will go unnoticed for the ocean and tears are both salty – they are the same. it will be our little secret,
All I am left with Is the feeling of what is I am ready for the future And what it will bring But I am also scared Because I don’t know What it will bring So I keep my head and eyes forward So they don’t get stuck in the past Because the future is now And I’m ready to grab on to it, I won’t be the last I am ready for the future And whatever it will bring
I fell, slowly at first. I was the snow at the top of the mountain that had been softly piling up and waiting for its moment to all come crashing down. I was the wood that smoked and turned until it finally caught, glowing brightly. I was the oak tree that was planted as a seed and grew for many years into a strong old oak tree, thriving. I was the rain slowly forming into raindrops and bringing the flood. But snow melts. And fire sizzles and burns out. Old trees that used to be beautiful shrivel and die. Even rain evaporates into thin air. Just like our love. Our love It was slow at first Until The avalanche came and went And the wood burnt out The once beautiful tree died And the rain evaporated. But I know The snow will pile up again And the wood will catch flame. New seeds will be planted And it will rain again. So I have hope.
To my English teacher who asked us if we believed in love at first sight. Thanks for the idea.
Is there such thing as love at first sight? Can we see a stranger walking down the street, And feel our hearts drop out of our chests In the realization that this stranger This beautiful and new person Is the person you have been waiting for, The person you have dreamed about Since the day you read your first fairy tale? Can you really, truly love someone If you don’t know them? Or do people just want to believe In love at first sight? Do they want to believe in small magics, So they don’t have to think about the now? Do they want to believe in rose petals and small kisses, Just to believe in something? Do they trick themselves into thinking That if it happens in movies and books It happens in real life.
You said we were in love But when did you fall out? Was it that day in the park During the summer drought? Or was it that night We had our first fight About something, I don’t even remember. Maybe all it was to you Was a game A way to twist my heart And tear it apart. Now I see you're moving on with someone new Do you tell her you love her too? Or is she just another game for you? Do you tell her she’s perfect for you? And she's the most beautiful girl you’ve ever seen? All those things You know you’ll never mean. I remember I believed you But now I know None of it was true. You said we were in love But when did you fall out? Because I know I didn't.
