I need you to see the reason,
Why the ocean from miles away lurk back ashore,
day and night to greet the loose sand.
Isn’t it strange when some distances,
just far enough to fall in love.
I need you to know,
How to stare at the moon amidst the stars,
when it burns in peace in the eternal shadow.
I drown myself in this darkness,
to let it know your depths belong to me.
If you could hear the raindrops sing,
they’ll tell how I kept my home,
near your heartbeat to listen to your whispers.
My lips knew only to speak until it met you,
It was the perspective of being alive traced my skin,
when your kiss made my flaws beautiful.
One day I can live long enough to tell you,
Your fire doused the flames inside a broken heart,
And melted it into one again.
