Empire-

I have created an empire of expectations.
Born from simple, single grains of creativity,
Swelling within my heart for many lifetimes,
Rising into overwhelming towers of pure exhaustion,
Which now stand to crumble under the turbulence,
Of a solitary ocean wave, carrying with it All hope and desire,
Curling back against itself and crashing with disparity,
A rushing tide churning the spirit into a white froth and mist,
Which dissipates into the cool, thin morning sunlight,
And resounds softly within the silent listeners ear.

Empire-
