Oceans

I learnt to let go when I was younger,
Scared of growing old,
I would swim far into the ocean,
& Try to stay afloat,
Until my lungs would cough up water,
& Sand would coat my bones, & I hope,
That someday I'll open up the floodgates,
& Let the lyrics flow,
Someday I'll understand the dry taste,
When the words are trapped below,
Some days I wonder if my airway,
Is clogged with all the quotes, that I wrote...
I feel worthless,
Maybe I should open the drawer,
Burn the pages,
Write poems with the ash on the floor,
Pour the ink, into the sink,
& Watch it drain from the shore...
I don't want love no more,
Though it's the one thing I've been
searching for,
Though it's the one thing that I miss the most,
Now I'm afraid to be alone...
I learnt to grow old when I was younger,
Scared of staying young,
Afraid of the thoughts that I had conjured,
That sat atop my tongue,
Knowing I'd change the worlds opinion,
If they would just, listen up...
But they won't, now...
I feel worthless,
Maybe I should open the drawer,
Burn the pages,
Write poems with the ash on the floor,
Pour the ink, into the sink,
& Watch it drain from the shore...
I don't want love no more,
Though it's the one thing I've been searching for,
Though it's the one thing that I miss the most,
Oh, I'm afraid to be alone...
Looking in the mirror like,
Maybe I will find myself tonight,
I ask for a better mind,
Then tap into the site through my third eye...
I had never realized,
I thought I had a chosen my design,
I thought I was broken all this time...
I don't want love no more,
Though it's the one thing I've been searching for,
Though it's the one thing that I miss the most,
Oh, I'm afraid to be alone...
