Turbulent Emotion

Turbulent Emotion

Ocean of regret
Wash over me
Tidal waves rushing in
Eager to crash on my head
Beating me down
I surrender
Lying back, calm
Thoughts made of insincerity
Walk all over me
Marching in
Happy to capsize my happiness
Shooting me down
I surrender
Hands up, calm
Moon of hope
Shine on me
Shadowy light, drawing me in
Pleased to give me reassurance
I surrender
Smiling, calm
Walking the mångata
With joy holding my hand
I know I’ll get there
In the end
For a while I just have to wait
Such are the rules
Of fate.

  1. Fate is always a little better when we also seek to find it, then we might not have our minds clouded with insincerity. A nice expression of emotions with the hope of finding calm and peace at the end 🙂

  2. ‘Shadowy light’ was a clever choice of words. I see what you did there. The whole tide-and-moon paralleled with emotions of regret, sorrow and hope worked quite well- really created an image in my mind. Also I learned a lovely new word for a lovely thing-mångata. Loved how neatly you sneaked that into the poem.
    Sorry for the long comment 😬 It’s been a while since I actually took some time to analyse someone’s poetry, so got carried away.
