The lies and disrespect
Covered up by your embrace
Left me blind but hopeful.
Your voice blocked the harmful fumes,
Leaving me trapped in a cage
—Choking on denial.
Was I crazy?
The salt was so suffocating.
Your choice of words—always careless.
How can you be so selfish?
Day after day I began to lose my grip.
The rope burning within my hands
Fraying at the question of Love,
Have I finally had enough?
Calling you out,
I came unannounced.
Could you really not see it coming?
The waves continued to climb,
Taking me further out to sea.
You watched as I drowned myself in tears—
—Begging for your reach.
There you stood with your thoughts unspoken
Like a coward, you knew we were broken.
Silence has a high price for these tears of mine,
By forefiting, You lost your chance to make amends.
Can you ever be a man?
Surrounded by this salty water,
I began to defend for myself.
The memories all lost at the bottom,
Won’t resurface if I won’t let them.
The sea sprays a mist upon me,
As the unforgiving scent lingers in the breeze.
I make the first step onto this new shore
Not looking back at the sea,
I found myself once more.
