My thoughts are an ocean
That I simply cannot fathom
In to words
Sand between my fingers
Sun in my eyes
Then gone with the tide
No matter how hard I try
All these pent up emotions
I end up building sandcastles
Never a Michelangelo masterpiece
That withstands the test of time
A notebook gathering dust
A swirl of emotions gone in an instant
And not a single idea to show for it.
