When the salt chuck was mine
I promised to dance as the ocean waves on the smiles you grant

For the sea I was a trap of destiny
To the sand I was too slippery to stamp

I embraced the wind bearing the taste of brine
I rendered a pledge from your bright eyes into the sea’s chant

Every edge of this tedious isle
You were the unending aria

At dawn, you would passionately rip the queen conch
The hush of the gale would turn into wail

The sun would set as the shore would reflect
Your voice a ditty, a glassy reverie

When the hurricane arrived
You were carried away by fright

A zephyr into a whirlwind
Drawing abyssal rumpus into ordeal

I tried to hold your hand tight
But you whispered “this is what it’s supposed to be”

You carved the salt into your skin- a sight of crystalline art
And breathed “i found a better shore than your stormy coast”

It was only a sojourn you said
So you left my briny, dull and murky

The salt chuck was a wreck
The queen conch was whacked
To Adrianne who left my heart shattered for he fell in love with his best friend.

3AM this morning, you broke my heart
You had me in your palms and you ripped me apart
3AM this morning, there was no more us
No more me and you left to discuss
3AM this morning, you left me alone
Not even in person, not a call but a text on the phone
3AM this morning, I felt my heart ache
I felt my arms shiver and I felt my knees quake
3AM this morning, I no longer had you
I lost my sun, my stars, my earth and my moon
3AM this morning, I felt a great loss
I miss you, I MISS YOU, no sugarcoats or  gloss
3AM this morning felt like a dream
Tell me this is a joke or part of some scheme
Come back to me please cuz 3AM was a nightmare
Come back to me so our lives we can share
Come back so I can hold you again
So I can love you the right way with no distain
You have my heart, lock and key
I will fight for you if you are willing to fight for me

You say you love me
when you let outrage shower my soul
letting the tears escape
and thoughts grumbling

You say you love me
when you're tired of explaining
confused notions seizing seconds into hours
unwelcome  thoughts conquering my sense

You say you love me
when you offer two words for my essay
disregarding the good points
heeding slipped appalling curses

You say you love me
when I see more lights in your eyes without me
i was once the peek of your existence
wider smiles, forgetting i exist

I am a boke in those glimmering eyes
blurred and easy to forget
I know, I know--
I knew.

My bed sheets remain the same
With the ******* stained on white roses
With the scent of skin fusing and hopes colliding
All for the pleasure of sweet surrenders

To my divan where you used to breathe in
Silence of exhaling roars
To my pillowcase trapped forever
Deep groans that left glorious scars

Bashfulness banished off the frame
Rolling strengths into the threads
Savoring the agony of loud throbs
Whispering my name to depth

For the love that is lost
For the love that never fades away
For the love that wanders every day
To my bed linens carved to eternity

— The End —
