Words I Cannot Say

Blue, deep sapphire, ocean bound,

I was swept by currents in your eyes. 


The shimmer and luster of yours 

Remind me of yellow-dyed sunset. 


Maybe that was why I crossed the line.

Shipwrecked, I veered into your life. 


Would you say I’m cruel for wanting,

Missing, needing when I said goodbye. 


I’m sorry I cannot hold your hand.

Bridges burned, I cannot turn back. 


Only in dreams I speak my mind. 

Would you listen to my tongue untie?
