Poetry Day: Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave

out of nowhere

he knocked me off my feet 

and pulled me under

deep into his world

i never struggled-

happy to drown

in all that surrounded me 

i traded air for water

separated myself from the world i knew

floating in filtered light

rocking with the current 

until much later

when he was done 

and took me up again

and left me on the sand

where I stared at the sun

and let it burn me 

until I hurt everywhere

inside and out

he was my rogue wave

there and gone

as if he’d never been at all-

somewhere below

when i was lost to him-

on the side of a shipwreck

i etched my name

proof that i was there too
