Tidal Wall

Did you ever wish you didn’t exist?
I have.

Do you ever wonder why you are the way you turned out?
Do you ever feel as if some integral part of you has been dissected, broken inside of you or lost beyond finding?

I have and every now and then, I do.

I do.

The leaves fall and I could speak out.
Then summer comes in fast and mighty
and I’m coy in my recoiling.
I’m sly in my avoiding.

There’s no arguments to be had when my voice is simply too small.

I thought I was enough but I continue to fall short.
Outspoken and slighted are you.

By who?
There’s adjustments to be made.

I can’t speak up.
You’re right.
Booming is your shout and your whisper.

Abomination, I hate myself for loving.
I hate my being so small.
I’m frail.

Everyone thinks they know me.
They’re not even breaking the slightest of surfaces.
Keep assuming, keep on keeping up with the Joneses.

I thought I was enough but I continue to fall short.
It’s coming.
I know it’s coming.

There’s a tidal wave and monsoon.
I’m drowning against the wall I continue slamming into.


  1. I love this so much.

    I read it from a place where I felt so slammed and alone… with no way out, other than someone sharing a piece of tidal wall with me.

    It’s hinting at so many things I want to say right now, but can’t.

    It’s one last stir of gentle phosphorescence before the lights go out.

    Get off the wall now, sis. Please. You have so much more ahead of you. Leave the place of slammed and broken things –

    I’ve got this.

  2. I’ve wondered a lot. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to not exist. But I have wanted to be someone else. Somewhere else. A different lifestyle…

      1. Any time 🙂 I’m really making an effort to be on this site more . It’s hard with my summer work schedule but I’m trying. I read a lot of sites so I try to get in as much as I could and post . I love writing.

    1. I really enjoy writing from how I imagine someone else might feel. It gets me out of my head and helps me to learn other perspectives. It’s an interesting challenge for me with writing. I love trying this random technique

      1. I’ve attempted it before. I try to put myself in other peoples shoes. Crazily enough it was actually like having a conversation with another person. A lot of poetry came from it!
