La Push: Foggy Seen


Standing here on the edge of the world
I feel the icy salt water crash
on through me and I never felt more alive
She's got my back, warming,
bracing me and I right there protecting
her from the crush.

Affirmations, are screamed out loud
for all to hear but whispered
to each other in our nest -- the overlook,
witnessing the raw force of nature rolling
off foggy depths of reality.

I spent too much time feeling my way
through the darkness guided
by a beating heart -- it's strange,
I didn't know I was lost all along. ¹

I am safe, not because of the harbor,
it's having her, a wild, darker child
than me thanking whoever we believe
all day and all night,
knowing home can wait. It all will still be
there after the storm as I left it
but I will never be the same. Ever.

¹ Wake Me Up, Avicii
