Sun rising with grief
setting with memories
pain rippling in between,
emotions all at sea,
tides turned on happiness
emotions undulating waves
ebb and flow exhausted
trawling time and places
now past
wishing for a flat calm.

Obviously, something bad has happened. This is a perfect, artful description of its aftermath.

Absolutely stunning sustained sea imagery that expresses powerfully the feeling of unsettling emotions. Always enjoy reading your work. Even the shape of the poem resembles a rogue wave.
