There's a transparent ocean in your eyes. So many things left unsaid tossed in the waves as I steal glances, always afraid of touching what lies in the dark, dangerous and foreboding.
My anxiety sits in a corner. It reminds me that there's a good reason to be wary because I am the only one who ends up getting hurt when it comes to you.
I have never known the address of your heart, even though it shares the same street as mine. Your house is not in the same realm of existence and I cannot visit or walk through the garden because it is always closed to me. Full of poisonous plants and predatory creatures who would hunt me for sport, the prey creature that I have become.
It seems that I have forgotten I used to be a lion. When did I discard my claws and fangs? Where did I misplace the roar that would make the bravest hunter shake in his dungarees, running for sanctuary?
I come riding on a high tide To kiss the white sandy beach Foamy, frothy billowing in the wind I roll away slowly out of reach Jewel toned and freshly salty Every drop of me is wet as the rain Sea shells, fish, crabs and turtles Life teems in my every grain. Blue my heart, blue my soul Blue the depth of my salty waters Blue the sails of the boats that float Undulating till the wind turns them into tatters I tip toe in the daytime and make my way Gently to the grainy sandy beach With the moon I ride hard and roar In the quiet of the night hear me screech Carefully I plan my every ride Sometimes I’m low , sometimes high Crashing down to melt into the soft sand My waves slowly turn into the tide The heart of me stores schools and shoals All manner of fish and creatures of the deep Coral and seaweed bloom and multiply Rocks of all kinds cover my floors in heaps Drop by drop I am the ocean vast In the sea shells hear me climb and vane I am in the calm waters of the deep in the sun And in the high tides over the night I reign
