Turn the Tide

Poetry by Maggie Thayer

It’s been ten years.
I’ve been waiting to see
Your blue eyes that used to glance at me.
Wondering if our story ended long ago
Or if maybe I should’ve known,
That you and I weren’t meant to be.
Some sort of crazy story,
Where the good and bad would come.
Like the tide rising in your eyes.
