Underwater Tears

Underwater tears don’t make a sound
Underwater breath is useless
Hold your breath anticipate the
Sharks coming my way

Waiting for an answer
Hope to god it doesn’t come
Underestimating the
Blinding face of the sun

Don’t you wish you had no choice
Like that girl right over there
Big round eyes like a gray whale
Careless with your fire hair

Tic Tac Toe
Played on your wrist
Arms crossed, you laugh a nervous laugh

The heart on your knee
Prompted an unaware
Smile but sick realization

When the music floods
Like the ocean into my ears
The notes are little splashy fish
And I smile to hear them sing

Though sometimes like a buoy
Heads bob through heat-stung crowds
We pass each other thoughtlessly
Not much better than the lonely buoy

you will never make it big if you dream small. youll never learn if your living in the past and youll never understand if you were to fast forward, just press play and live!
