Tide

1

 

an ocean of tears swelled from his eyes

blinded

by a fire filled sunrise

the salt poured down rising peaks

burning

rivers into his cheeks

a tide of emotions erupted and crashed

scalding

his fevered hope dashed

a briny grit scraped his skin raw

blistering

the world below he saw

drying into a puddle of hate

sizzling

at the base of a golden gate
