It gathers momentum and strength in the background
Seeping back and forth unsuspectingly.
It’s silent at first, like a shadow mimicking your every move building trust, becoming part of you.
The presence becomes more apparent.
You attempt to ignore it, but that only feeds it.
You acknowledge it, observe it, and face it as the power continues to build.
That unsuspecting motion now towers above you
Using your own knowledge to drown you.
Crashing down suddenly you succumb to the inevitable and struggle to catch your breath.
You’re left overwhelmed, confused and exhausted.
Standing still you wait to retrieve your senses,
Looking back in disbelief as the wave returns to a harmless murmur trickling in the background
And leaving you wondering how this happened…
