Like the soil eroding at the shoreline, the ebbing tide steals from me, my own self worth.

ROGER WATERS: "The Tide Is Turning" (HD)

A relentless onslaught of feeling inadequate, of feeling incompetent enough to bring to fruition, what has been given by the universe. This is the fourth draft of this piece A tightrope is erected between consistency and quality and like two amateur tightrope walkers these halves attempt to meet in the middle. Meanwhile the ebbing tide continues to suck in all attempts to maintain any semblance of self worth. But there is a point at the peak of the ebb, at the lowest moment in the entire phase, where I feel I can longer endure, if I were not to attempt one last time to write and make it all the way to the end.

At this fragile moment I write, it is not a decision born out of choice but rather despair, I must write, there is no excuse left, the tide has carried them all with it, into the depths of the sea.

A Bit Of Detail

And so I write. I write to be consumed by it.

Two cousins

Hoping nothing of me survives, only so that I may never have to go through this infernal torture again. I write until the words gush from the depths of their slumber, like a reservoir door opened after a night of pouring rain. This is where the ebb ends and there is a respite from the hollowing of the self. As I write the tide turns, each keystroke adding more strength to the return of the flood. The tide builds, it builds and it builds upon itself. Like a shipwrecked sailor I cannot fathom how it does so, but is does. Passages are stacked upon passages by a will of their own.

I wait for the tide to build like an orchestra warming up, tuning itself, setting a pace. Conducting itself, the verbs, the adjectives, the nouns line themselves up into various sections and the movements begin to write themselves.


The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls

And yet I wait for the tide to build. I wait for the melody to reach a point, where it can no longer be contained, where it must be let loose, where it must burst forth from the instruments, the walls of the hall into the world. There is nothing left to do but gird myself for the tide. And the tide returns with a force that often scares my fragile self.

Frances finally accepted his proposal the following spring, ushering in the happiest eighteen years of Longfellow's life. The couple had six children, five of whom lived to adulthood, and the marriage gave him new confidence. In , he published Evangeline, a book-length poem about what would now be called "ethnic cleansing. In , Longfellow decided to quit teaching to devote all his time to poetry.
