Staying Afloat

Tears
expound
on what’s found
when the heart breaks.
Believing we’ll be drowned
beneath our series of mistakes
is enough to increase the many aches
from unfulfilled promises we lost to the years.
Still, we try to stand steady with the quakes
and attempt to control the shakes
that make us come unwound.
No one forsakes
as we’re bound
by sound
fears.
