Wave After Wave.

You flood my shores
Your waves crash upon the sand
Smashing the loose rocks I rolled into place
       for protection.

Your waters fill each empty space
Between each grain of sand
It all swells as you erase the emptiness
And deflates as
       you leave.

Wave after wave you attack and withdraw 
You erase old things
You wash up new treasures
Wave after wave and I can't help the thought
That this is precious for me, but for you
       it's not.
