It comes in waves
A tsunami, 100 feet tall 
Making landfall 
On the parched shore of my heart.
Filling it with love 
Slowly, steadily 
Enriching it, then drowning it 
Whirlwind of emotions
Swallowing everything in its wake
A distant memory, a happily-ever-after dream 
Reduced to rubble. 
Blinded, bruised, battered
Must have been my fault.
As the second wave gets ready,
I close my eyes
And face it all over, again.
