I dream of the ocean;
that paper-thin line where
the current swallows the stars
and the water churns violet

(you tell me to be
quiet,

dandelion queen, we've
heard all these words before)

tonight
I will sleep heavy
and wake a few hours before dawn,
only to forget my name

my wave-weathered heart will cry,
I will cry (my biggest fear
is drowning in too many
of my own weighted words

you tell me to be
quiet
so I can hear the world breathe)

I want to go home
(i live near the coast, i wish the water was really that romantic)

It's like I can hear you breathing when I read this poem... and the rise and fall of the ocean's waves. Well done.

At least you live near the coast, I live in a city full of dust and grunchy people. How's that for romantic?

As for the poem, I'm at loss for words! :heart::heart::heart:
