A Poem

The tide

rushes in and out

without a doubt

feeling like it's wrong when it's right

people are always telling me to sleep tight

but the waves

of inhibition

and indecision

they ruin me

when they should be soothing me

and I forgive the people who hurt me

those who I feel desert me

Wishing for a better day

something to take the pain away

all i want

is for someone to choose me

for someone to be here

instead of walking over there

many people

they still care

but these are cloaks of sadness

that I wear

in a pile

over there.
