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
