Poem: This Red Sea

floodwar

This Red Sea

A red sea
of broken memories
floods deep
into all of me

It seeps beneath
this dam I’ve built
This armor-like skin
and wraps me in its current

Its waves rise
and crash mercilessly
bombarding the shores
of my sanity

A raging tsunami
through the streets of my home
washing away debris
and all I’ve ever known

And now everything
I once held dearest
has been destroyed by the memories
I cannot forget

Within this red sea
where my broken memories bleed
to the bottom, I sink
within this red sea
