melancholy waves

and the melancholy feeling swells,
breaking the tide with its glory,
memories and dreams resurfacing
from being suppressed so long –
the symphony swells the melody rises
the crescendo into the sky the pinnacle
of your life –

but the waves crash. and you are left,
– the melody dwindles into silence
and waves dry until salty teardrops remain –
your arms reaching out,
grasping for something
that you can never have.
