The Ocean Looking Back

Photo by Kellie Churchman on Pexels.com
Hazelnut eyes look at me, 
An ocean of sorrow reflected back
At times, the tides turn, 
The waves slowing down, 
And allowing for a moment of happiness
But, all too soon, 
It's washed away, 
Drawn back in by those cerulean arches
My face, the tan flesh resting there, 
Is like the golden shore, 
A map of grainy sand
Tread over again and again
The ocean waves, 
Majestic in their beauty, 
Merciless in their cruelty, 
Constantly bear down on me
