Saw It Coming

I saw it coming
But you refused to see
You shut your eyes
And turned away from me
The mirrored image
Showed the tumults sway
You wouldn’t notice
You just looked away

I saw it coming
Saw it take you down
You found no comfort
No protected ground
You turned and saw me
Had a questioning glance
You thought yourself victim
To mere happenstance

I saw it coming
I tried to warn you true
Hoped you would notice
And would travel through
The waves here breaking
Breaking overhead
But you ignored me
Turned away instead

I saw it coming
And why didn’t you?
Is fear so strong
It is the heart of you?
Denial’s child
Is the last to cry
But cry you will
And just before you die

I saw it coming…

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
