Modes of Sadness

New modes of sadness.

1. Holding on to a small flower

2. Chin placed on tired hands

3. Eyes looking through windows, hoping to see something new.

4. Chest constricting with each clumsy movement.

These new modes of sadness touch the core and come in undulating waves in the darkened sea reflecting the black sky. The stars hide, unprepared for viewing and guiding lost mariners at sea. My new modes of sadness trouble me quietly, and I am stuck beneath a continuously crashing wave.
