- What Matters
Drop everything you have
into an open sea.
A sea full of treachery &
I gave my all just to sail
& discover its bounds.
But all I found was a whirlpool
of lies & success unbound.
It sucked me within its depths
as I heard the gentle current
whisper "I love you" while
it took away my last breathe.
We swayed together hectically but
comforting also, I found myself
never wanting to go, so I followed.
But the sea began its battle with me.
A war of control & tucked away pain under the ocean deep.
Lost within my mind, dazed &
It never occurred to me the was
just a phony.
Until it mistook me for a fool.
The day I began to walk to the shore away from the never ending pool.
I tried & tried, but couldn't take life on the land.
I ended up making a sea of my very own tears as a last stand.
I dove into the water, unsure but willing to trust.
Who knows whether it was because of love or lust?
The seaweed of fever wrapped around my heart.
I never once received an early start.
But the brilliant blue shined on &
so I held on.
Once again, I was taken for a fool & I lost all trust.
So I began my risque journey back & forth between the land.
The water between to entrap me & reveal its treacherous ways.
I rivaled I could no longer stay.
I was fed up with freefalling through a enchating, unknown world & living along the side of pain.
But to this day, I still feel the salt on my skin & the taste in my mouth, the fluidity of my body deep in the South.
That blue, salty poison forever reminds me of the treachery & deceit of that dark, blue ocean.
