rescue

I hear the thunder
far past the horizon
echoing vibrations
that haunt me
and more often than not,
I am drawn to the desire
to swim towards the sound
to rescue the one thing
that I cannot see bleed
I feel it
and worry that I will fail
to arrive in time
and like foam dispersing
from the salty shores
into the moving sand
it will escape me
and the vast emptiness
will be the landscape
that reminds me
of when I became lost
