Don't feel stupid if you don't like what everyone else pretends to love.
-Emma Watson

Her eyes were as soft as the whispering tides,
Her voice as calm as the salty breeze,
I remember it like it was just yesterday,
The ocean and its vast mysteries.
My feet ached for the reassuring sands,
My troubles flushing away with the rising tides.
My heart was still, and then
Pounded with the happiness of a thousand freedoms.
Nothing could make me feel upset here,
Nothing could hurt the peaceful abide that I had found for myself.
And then I left.
For years and years,
I never felt that feeling.
The feeling of flying while your feet are on the ground,
The warm smile you get across your face when you wake to the new day.
The hopeful hand pulling you out of bed as early as the songbird sings.
I hadn't felt it in years,
Until her.
Her vast opinion,
Her endless mysteries,
Her smile that paints salmon sunsets and belonging blue skies in my mind.
Her endless glow,
That radiates from her personality,
Swirling her into my thoughts.
She is my sunset,
She is my soft reassuring sands,
She is my own tide,
Washing away my worries like the disappearing foam.
My very own mystery,
One whom I could never,
Even possibly think,
Of leaving.

The author's comments:

Recently, I have began to accept things about myself that I have ultimately tried to hide, one of the important ones being that I am bisexual.  And as much as I tried, I couldn't change who I was.  This piece came to me when I was trying to explain to my parents how I feel about girls, specifically one.  Who I have a major thing for.  It took all of my will not to post this anonymously, so I hope you enjoy.
