Tidal Waves

Once is too many
A thousand is never enough
Mentally exhausted
Caving into her weakness
Darling
You're worth so much more
Than a ten second rush
A beautiful flushed face
Pinned eyes
A mouthful of lies
Telling yourself you can't
Go on
Without... but
Without a doubt
My dear
You can persevere
You're not too far gone
You can still see land
I can see the ocean
In your eyes
Rising and falling
Crashing and crying
The sea is unforgiving
Swallowing up ships
Spitting them out a wreck
But you are not that
You can forgive
And you will
Unlike the sea
You are not cold
This abyss of addiction
Is not your final destination
Your currents will shift
You'll flow smoothly
Soon enough
