water remembers (2 poems)

(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 it 
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 
the ocean and me.
