Your Eyes

I sit there staring
into a wild blue ocean
pretty soon I'm falling
into it
Many consider it
cold, painful, full of despair
All I see is
a vast world
full of
random creatures,
sporadic tides,
and the insane gulls
flying overhead

They laugh at me
as I float along
hopelessly lost
in this sea
but to me,
there's nothing better

Occasionally an empty island
appears in the distance
a solid pinnacle
in this watery world

The waves crashing
on the shore
soothe me as
I wash up on
the beach

And as I wake on the sand,
I look around
and realize I'm
alone,
So I jump
back into
the wild blue
sea,
to float
in bliss,
until you
look away
again

You can't help but love beautiful work like this. My favorite part is where you wake on the sand and realize you're alone. From there to the end.

Oh, and I just want everyone to know that these are my eyes.
