Crashing on the shore

Oh how I enjoyed the Ocean's soft mist.
When the dark waves came crashing to the shore!
That powerful moment when we first kissed.
My heart opened up and I wanted more.
I felt the stirring of love on that shore.

Like the Ocean I was drawn to you.
A lovely Siren's song you sung to me.
Our moments together they seemed so few
Were you afraid I wouldn't set you free?
I had hoped you would be happy with me.

So now I dive into the Oceans waves.
Not wanting to hear any other sound.
Remembering how we explored those caves.
That place where I thought true love had been found.
Hear waves crashing, that's my heart's breaking sound!

Floating on waves of pleasure that crash onto the shore bringing pain. That's the way of life sometimes.
