Tidal Wave
You engulfed me with power, coercion, as your body covered mine, took over mine, I struggled against the undertow. Still, the current carried me away from my body. Separated from myself, watching from the lighthouse, unable to save the ship (More)
One step at a time, but sometimes I can't find my footing. One day at a time, but they pass too quickly with little progress and growing hopelessness. One moment at a time, but time is a construct reminding everyone they are too busy. On (More)
