PEARL

Where are you my dear?
Conflicting thoughts engaged
As the ocean's spiral flows
My heart melts
From the heats of your long

My carelessness was a player
Thought my carefulness fully 
engaged
I feel the breeze as violent blows
Pelt from the sun rays constant 
pelts
Depressed, my conscience 
reward of a wrong

Lost now, so much I care
Upon myself, I am enraged
Mocked by the ocean's deceptive 
shows
No other choice, fastened  I my 
life-jacket belts
My guilt intoxicates me so strong

For my pearl, this pain I must 
bear
Without you, an incomplete pair.
