The seas are calling

I’ve made this new friend lately, and

we are still getting to know each other.

Some days I invite him home,

talk a little and get to know each other better.

On some days, I wish him dead.

I’ve grown so strong and deep

in our bond that it’s wrecked me from within.

These days when I look in the mirror,

all I notice is grey smoke.

A smoke that stings through my nostrils,

that when I take a whiff of it,

makes me recall your blurry face

that left me with a charred heart.

You’ve gone to a place

far beyond my reach.

I lay on the grass

and reach out my arms,

for love to caress me,

this one last time.

Maybe you are my distant dream

with unicorns and rainbows.

In a world where there is less hatred,

let’s embrace each other a little longer

and pocket moments.

This life is nothing but a charade

finding you has been a sad tale.

You clung to me

when I had nobody.

Sucked, my soul out like a demon,

I wilted and withered,

on this soil

decaying and dying from the inside.

During my recovery in solitude,

I wish to resonate with the seas in silence.

My sins washed away,

with every tide

that kisses my feet.

Breathe the ocean’s wind,

hear the gushing waves

and call upon nirvana

believing in a better tomorrow.

My darkest corners are my sacred space

for I never invite anyone in,

or let anything out.
