Rising from Shadows

The plastic curtains ruffled
As they held on to it helplessly
While the water poured,
the salt dissolved
Thus leaving no trace
of them or what they were doing

The shadows reflected a bow,
and for a while all was quiet
They justified and vented
But the knot kept tightening
Tightening into something almost tangible

Finally it could take no more
The ocean sprayed and waves crashed into the rocks
Finally it could not hold on
The plastic curtains lay still,
As they let go with purpose…
