the healing sea

our emotions are the ocean

some waves gentle 

on your toes along the shoreline

others heavy 

rolling on and on and on 

pulling you in deeper

sinking from resistance to feel

unable to see the surface

as hurricane season hits the broken heart 

storming the mind with memories

his voice

the color of his eyes

his scent

salt stinging the wound

while washing it all away

cleansed by the healing sea

until one day you can finally say 

“I feel like me”
