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?
