The Wake - Gail Taylor

The Wake

By Gail Taylor

From the wake,

that turbulent flow

of errant emotions

riding the crests and

  troughs of my despair,

arose an inner thought…

wakened at first

as an ever-expanding

shock wave of despair,

moving methodically

through my memories

searching for a path,

a harbour…

a retreat from pain,

but now awakened

by the collapse

upon a distant shore,

of an undertow

which is returning

with its dredges,

 those sands of regrets,

whispering, whining

and wailing

that I stand alone

ever in the wake

of time
