Turbulent Tides – Written Tuesday 26th January 2010 (Aged 34)

Turbulent Tides

i feel distant from the turbulent tides
the ones that crash against their shore
i feel that their problems,
are not mine anymore
not that they ever were
but when you want to care
you can almost believe,
the answer is a problem shared
but the answers have always been there
it is knowing if you truly dare
my life is no easier
and no accommodation,
built on a bed of roses
and no bed of nails either
but some days i long for a breather
i feel distant from their turbulent tides
the ones that crash against their shore
