Down Deep

 

I am like an ocean.

most people who meet me,

try to get to know me,

set out on the ships of their lives,

some great and some small.

They sail on the waves

of my emotions,

but when they bring up the past,

they get scared of the tidal waves,

of my summer storm.

they quickly retreat the shore lines,

walking away from me.

But as memories resurface,

bubbling out from a chest's lock.

I'm in a state of despair,

and it puts my waves into turmoil.

 

Oh how long will it take,

till someone will dive down deep,

and save me from myself,

before these secrets wash away who I am,

and who I want to be?
