Broken waves and breaking hearts,
I walk the beach and feel the shards
of crumbled castles on ravaged lands.
You brought me water, but I wanted sand.

Pale-cheeked cliffs and burning trees,
we fell from mountains, feet to knees.
You told me that I’d learn to fly,
but all I learned was how to die.

Tightened fingers, breaking lungs
we fought until our tongues went numb.
I wanted love, you wanted lust,
You wanted glitter, I wanted rust.

Pulsing sinew, ragged breath
I still cried the day you left.
I begged you for another chance,
You gave me not a backwards glance.

Broken waves and a broken heart,
I watch the water heal, then part.
An opened wound on steady land,
the water suffers, but not the sand.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

your gonna make me cry with how amazing this is.
