Truth to the Ocean, Solace Blown Downwind

By AlyssaR

She won’t turn and look at me.

I’ve gone, I’ve said it. There is no return.

The whole time, she pushed me out,

Presenting her back.

I could’ve broken down there, but instead,

I turned and told my story to the sea,

Pretending the waves would erode the magnitude of my words,

Pretending her shield couldn’t faze me,

Pretending I didn’t care.

But I did. And I do.

I only took the beginning because it was, in my opinion, the most powerful, relatable part.
