Above these tides of dreams and life,

Where birth is but a breath from death,

And all the fears you thought you’d fled,

Can gather round to smooth your brow.


Above them – can we say above? –

They flow, they ooze, they doubt, they prove,

A conscious flood of yesterdays.

What made you strong – that quivered lip?


That toy you held, because because you knew

It couldn’t last? You gripped it tight.

The love you held as if they’d leave

A note for you, and nothing more?


The tides keep rising from your past:

On each remembered kiss there’s blood.
