'nearly a storm'

Like a raging sea
crashing into reality
faces enlightened
feelings enhightened
the heart and mind pulled
the urge is in full
but the climax not filled
the fresh water distilled
the fizz and the buz
goes flat and undoes
the water still ripples
as the mind slowly cripples
the near overflow
bubbles down to a low
and the ocean lies still
as the storm turns to a chill
what may have been
mellows out to a stream
a slow narrow calm
to stop the strong ocean harm
now a flat murky lake
covers the tidal heart brake
gentle way out, like the tide going 'bye'
re-adjusting the balance, 'so long' temporary high..

    See I do want to congradulate you but I also want to offer something more tangible than just a clone comment of everyone beneath me so I will say this: I remember how you expressed your insecurity over your writing to me back in March. Now I look at this poem and see it's your first so I hope you can find more appreciation for your own talent as much as I and the Soup do for featuring it. Also I get why it's nearly a storm. Whatever happened to enlighten the faces, I hope it was something loving
