like an incoming tide approach
only to be followed by others
caught in an undertow, one goes down.

in the sea of darkness
only those who care to search
may find what lies at the bottom.

At the waters edge
the remains
of what has been carried in
can be found.

has been scattered about
what is left has been tangled
among the weeds
unable to surface.

pass on by
some stop to search, but
cannot find the missing pieces.
they continue on.

has once again
engulfed me
for my cries
cannot be heard.

During periods of our lives darkness may engulf us, but if we keep fighting we can rise above.
