Poetry: "Untitled 137" by Lauren E. Long
By Lauren E. Long
I used to feel you
Coming back to me in waves
Drifting further past safety
I was always so sure
You'd wash over me again once more
Summer smothered us in distance
While time gently escaped us
Like most late summer days do
I'm sorry for turning our ocean
Such an ugly shade of blue
