Maybe

Maybe I saw you in a different light.

Where the flowers were vibrant and new.

I didn’t see that the flowers were beautiful but they were decaying.

Where the waves were hugging the shore.

Had I known that the waves were carefully attacking the shore in hopes of escaping the ocean.
                   It never wanted the shore but it was the only escape.

Maybe the clouds danced in the sky during sunset.

If the clouds only knew that after those colourful minutes would be darkness and a storm waiting to happen.

You showed me that there is beauty in destruction and i don’t know if I should thank you. 

  


Love Affair With The Sea

I can’t swim but I love the sea

a painful combination 

For all I know, I’ve left pieces of myself with the ocean

parts of myself I’m far too terrified to take back.

Parts of myself I believe no longer belongs with me

And although I’m petrified of not being able to touch the ocean floor,

I’d jump in any moment

to feel complete again

 even for a little while.
