Ocean Eyes

I remember thinking,

that your blue

deep dark blue eyes

... Could solve anything



and that your smile...

your pearly white smile

could fix my sadness,

but when the ocean eyes

became the cause of my pain

and the grinning moon

became the cause of my tears.

I realized... that i was wrong.

You were more of a diease

than a cure.

You did not improve the light

but only made it darker

and as i run from the darkness that hollows,

I can no longer think about ocean eyes and the grinning moon


You are the darkness that follows.
