Where the Ocean Lies

July 31, 2013

I looked in her eyes and found the ocean
even it’s white peaks and endless dark depths
splashing waves showed her every emotion
easily revealing internal deaths
I hoped the waters would calm when she slept
as they were concealed by ivory lids
the ocean leaked on her face when she wept
spilling her spirit that was like a kid’s
when angered ice formed under her lashes
causing frozen glared that cut with no knife
the ripples would surge and become crashes
her eyes were the door to another life
the sea’s ferocity was in her soul
and it was worth any loss of control

I believe in everything until it is disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?
-John Lennon
