Lost Love

Lost Love

On the brink
I thought you were an ocean of love
But you were just a sink
You hooked me hard and instead of reeling me in
You sailed away, never to look my way again

My heart sank
With the heaviness of a tank
Pulled down and shredded to pieces
For long years I bled into the ocean
Attracting all sorts of carnivorous creatures
They ravaged me, never satisfied
For a destroyed heart cannot sustain for long

Horrified by the bloody scene
I wanted to put my heart back together
So that it could float to the surface and enjoy fair weather
That is the true ocean’s treasure

It took untold salty tears
But I finally cried myself out of the depths
And long the way
I discovered it all
The mermaids invited me to their ball
We danced with pearls in our wavy curls
Now I know the flow
Of where the messages in bottles go
You are reading one right now

I hear the beat of my own rhythm
And feel nourished from within
I had to nearly drown in lost love
To learn how to swim
