My ocean has waves.
Waves that clutch pain,
Thrash against shore,
I'd be out of my mind,
If I said I was well,
I waited for time to tell,
Still you never came to my aid.
Every six seconds you disappear,
We should have learned our lesson,
But things have been this deranged since last year.
My tears are weightless,
Invisible because I can't cry,
I wonder if the pain would be any different,
If you were a stranger,
Yet I am so close to you,
In the sense that you made me.
However I can't find the bond,
The one we've been yearning for so long,
So why should I be wrong?
Excuse me for my attempts to care,
Excuses on important dates when you couldn't be there,
I am at fault?
Not fair.
My ocean has waves.
Waves that wash up hope,
Hope that you will realize before we escape,
Hurry before it's too late.
