Picture

Written by: Nick Ruff



Beside the swell of ocean waves
That strain to reach the eastern coast,
There lies away a distant dream
From which I haven’t yet awoke

Her silhouette is bathed in rays
As fingers stretch and bend to pluck
A song that I will never know,
With feelings I can never touch

But still I see that subtle grace
Left yet unmarred by years undone,
Still held within her sea green eyes
As she stares off into the sun.
