Tidal

it’s always there

feeling

that emotion

but it doesn’t come

up for air

not for days

weeks

or months

Until it happens

It is outside of me

something mundane

a comment

a look

too much light

too much sound

that hurts

it breaks the surface

like a high tide

unfelt felt emotion

before I know

tsunami like

coursing up and out

with veracity

and I retreat

backwards

like low tide

and hide
