Wake

Wake

Wishes that would
awaken a silent heart
Buoyancy of hopes
and dreams
once safely tethered
are now washed away
in your wake
Left vulnerable
and unsafe
Treading water
in the changing
climate of choppy seas
once hot with passion
Now chillingly cold 
as I am left
searching
once more for
an emotional life raft

    Love how you’ve used the sailing analogies to describe heartbreak and disappointment.
