Trouble You

With Small Worries

I see you


I’ll trouble you

I’ll speak to you

Waves crash and break through

my sea wall of pain.

I’ll sound trumpets across gloomy oceans

I’ll spend you

I won’t spare you, but will disturb you

with my cares and worries.

Look out storm, my cries and worries shall stir your oceans

greater than any hurricane or winter squall

I will encroach upon the sea of Moby Dick and captivate the breezy waters

I will trouble you!
