Culture Shock

And in a rush a
Lifetime of loss rushes over me
Flooding my body
With the excessive echoes of ghosts
Convulsing in the sorrow of memories
That never existed
I swam here
Over saltwater oceans of tears
Nearly drowned and still
Nothing sits before me
Nothing changes on the waves
Of loneliness
In isolation we face
The emptiness of our
Deepest selves
With both wonder and cowardice
