Self Portrait

You see my sapphire eye
dare you look inside
what will you see
will it be me
or a girl
from your imagination 
someone you conjured up
my lucks ran out of luck
I am an open book 
but secrets still lay inside
read between the lines 
and can hear the cry 
seems like you can read 
me easily
can you touch me like braille 
certain parts 
childlike and frail
twinkling neath the surface
of my white sandy sea
yes I’m lost
you must see me searching
for someplace deserving
Caribbean blue clear and free was 
once me
now the stormy waters
with the circling sharks
eat me alive 
stuck out in the dark 
Bermuda triangle 
do not dare enter
for the sailors who came here 
have not left centered
let my rain come down
and wash away 
my tears 
no one will come 
and save me from these fears
I have lost the hope to 
find the one 
to bring me back into the sun
