I look into oceans,
Crystal clear.
I know they show kindness,
But it doesn't help my fear.
Yes I'm scared.
Not of what can become,
But of what has already been done.
I can feel it in every bone;
I can sense my heart going numb.
The fear is consuming my mind,
I hope it will end in time.
But can I really wait that long,
Separate feelings from the truth.
Come back to reality,
Go back to being mute.
I wish I could,
I shake with nerves
Every time I talk to you.
My heart speeds up,
I feel all weird.
You make me afraid,
For more reasons than one.
I don't know if I can last.
You think you know me,
But you don't.
I'm stilled haunted by my past.
Every image,
Every memory,
Breaking all I have.
I used to believe,
But now it's hard to.
Fairytales don't exist.
I used to think
That life could change,
With one true loves kiss.
But love is dangerous.
Love is pain.
How can it ever be real?
But ocean blues,
They make me think
That maybe I'm wrong.
There could be love,
And fairytales,
And hope all along.
But ever since it happened,
Even "I love you" sounds like a lie.
Good things come to those who wait,
Well I've been waiting all my life.
All I've had is pain.
All I've felt is abandonment.
But ocean blues make me feel like I have a place.
I don't feel so lonely when they're around.
I feel like I can fly,
But they're is still all the lies.
I can't be myself,
Who would even talk to me?
I'm damaged,
I'm broken,
I'm no good.
But those ocean blues,
They make me want to be better.
They lift me from even my lowest places.
I can still feel all the pain,
I still feel all alone.
My heart is still in pieces,
But maybe just maybe,
Those ocean blues can help.
Maybe they can show me the way.
Maybe they can help me heal.
Maybe just maybe,
They are what I always dreamed of.
Maybe they are...
My savior
