High Tide

A soft blanket of blue rolls onto the shore
Capturing all it meets in a chilly tickled hug
Carving hearts into the sand
My mind blithe and blissful

Extensive conflicts come to a close
As you reach my arms again
And the world stands still
Rivers stop flowing
As the tide finally reaches me

But the most beautiful things
Can end abruptly
The tide begins to move back
Dashing forward i find jagged glass washed ashore
And sand now trapped in an hourglass

The ocean reduced to a murky puddle
When I reach out my hands
No swirling currents remain to greet me
And the hearts carved in the sand fade away
My mind left astray
