Alone Ocean

By Kovine

Waves only crash over me 
When I’m left alone 
At night in bed 
Swathed in sweat and the unnerving feeling
Of unshed tears that won’t spill over

Because if they do 
It’ll be real
When they do 
The waves will drown me 
Distraction running low

I’m tired 

Sometimes waves crash over me 
And it’s not so bad 
The ocean isn’t mad 
Just reminding me 
That I can float
