Emotional waves during COVID

Emotional Waves // A poem written in and amongst the waves of emotion which seem to be flowing through this collective experience.

It comes in waves.

waves of varying pace, size

and bodily consumption

The waves hit hard

and they caress softly,

as if barely touching my skin

They flow and move;

they join hands and dance,

surrounding me with in their sweat

And when the heat

becomes too much to bare,

there is stillness

but only for a minute,

only one minute

and then they are stirring again

trickling into every corner of me

I am full of them,

and then

I am empty,
