#OctPoWriMo – Day 15 – Waterlogged



I like the tingling feeling of

tiny ocean waves lapping at my legs,

I can’t swim well

in a lackadaisical haze


I remember the roaring swells,

You had a competition with them,

screams of lament, sea salt raw,

remember them?


I like my ears ringing

with your exposed grief,

and the brackish water

burying me underneath,


distorting every sound
I’ll hear from now on

  1. “Tingling feeling of tiny ocean waves”… this line makes me feel it too and it’s so lovely.

    Just so you know, I can’t seem to see Like or Comment buttons when reading you on Reader. I have to look for the notifications of you liking my posts, click from there, then see the buttons.

    Much love,

      1. Did you import your blog into WordPress? Their Support team may be able to help. Yes, it happens on my mobile, too. I don’t think it was a problem reading on my PC.


  2. I click on the actual post titles then I can see everything on my mobile if I scroll down far enough. Dunno if that helps? Is a bit in the ‘customise’ bit of my theme (or the ‘reading’ part of the dashboard maybe? Was a while ago I found it) that concerned like buttons X
