Tide Pools

Tied Pools by Cheryl McDonald

Tide Pools

The world flows in and out of consciousness like tidepools
My intensity is uncovered, my feelings bare and open

I am fragile and raw.
The sensations grow
Waves of emotion intense and sharp.

I am ready to explode, the dream, the world washes over me
Covering me like velvet
Soft and warm until the next low tide.
