The redness in your eyes saddens me,
Like tears of ocean water in my eyes.
We used to dance, fly past cornfields and onward to our dreams,
Two energies, one motion.
My heart couldn't differentiate between black and white,
It only beat red hot for you.
You weren't always like this – I should know.
I wasn't always like this; you should know.
I went to the ocean today and thought of you,
I'm afraid I didn't like it;
The saltwater stung my eyes.

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by how love can be beautiful yet destructive, just like the ocean.

"I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like a child stringing beads in kindergarten - happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another." Brenda Ueland
