Riding the Wave


(Dedicated to Stacey Brown)


One moment,

I am fine,

I am happy.

Out of the blue,

triggered by something,

the wave crashes over me.

So sudden,

no warning, no sign,

I am in the depth of despair.

For just a moment,

life no longer matters,

all I wish for is peace.

I ride the wave,

I allow it to crest,

to wash through me.

Once it has passed,

a smile returns to my face,

the world has color once more.

My heart will go on,

I will thrive,

it was just pain, just grief.
