Amber Insets Under the Pensacola Moon
I only said I hated you because you made me forget about someone. Windswept
and entwined on the beach your amber eyes froze me in place. And I wanted to
tell you to leave me alone, that I was content with hurting, but you dressed my
wounds without blinking. Now the moon and the stars, the waves and the sand
are etched in my mind...
Now my heart was racing and my hands were shaking, I reached up and
pushed the hair from your eyes; their intensity was burning through my lies, it
was drying up my tears and insecurities, and when our lips met I felt like a child
Innocent, Careless, and Free
Then you took me by the hand, and pulled me in the ocean, waist deep in crystal
water with a million tiny moons reflecting off the surface, our lip found each other
again and I thought to myself: So this is happiness? Then you said, "I'm so glad I
found you..." Looking in the abyss of your eyes I said "Yeah, so am I"
But I left right that evening, I never looked back but it hurt. And as the miles
build up between us, nothing can stop your voice from creating echoes, bouncing
off the walls in this room. Oh Adrianna I swear everything is true, I haven't slept
since the day I met you.
