Tidewater Love

You found me washed up on the shore of broken dreams

The place where many others were found dead

Or so it seems

I was choking on words

I was choking on atmosphere

I had been lost in the current so long…

I had to adapt to what was here.

And You

You who rescued me from the waters…

And made me your token pearl,

You can’t keep me in a bottle…

Keep me in your world

So you’ve found something great,

And you swear you won’t lose it at any rate.

But I’m not a ship in a bottle…

Waiting there for you to fondle.

You have to let me go…

Set me free!

Love me only in your mind!

Because Darling,

It wasn’t meant to be…

And You

You who keeps me in a jar…

Hiding me from anything,

Everything, 

That tries to come near my heart.

I’m dying…

More than I ever have before…

You found me washed up on the shore

Saw a light

And wanted more.

So, here I am in your cage…

I’m dying!

Oh, My love I’m dying…

My soul is dying…

Love me,

Leave me be…

The Ballad of Snow White

Poison was the remedy

That merged two souls to one

With shattered heartbeats that clattered

And reverberated to the same hum.

An apple grows in the cavity of the chest

Its expected that a gold box is where the heart finds rest.

But comatose we all lay

Awaiting the chance to live

Finding the one who inflates the idle lungs of the seemingly dead

And what do we see with eyelids closed?

All during our wait?

Is it a dream we mold for ourselves?

Is it something we create?

An apple sits in the cavity of the chest…

Missing a bite or two…

With a lonely soul’s unknowing fate,

What possibly could the venomous nectar do?

Somehow awaken the unmentioned feelings that were blatantly thrown askew?

Touched to the cold lips of lost chance…

That suddenly renewed  to the color Blood Red,

While eyes open to be blue…
