i’ll show you how the ocean cleanses the soul.

i saw you

cast your cares into turquoise seas,

watched you fumble

with these glass emotions

until they became stars in an amethyst sky

i already know where you go when you hide

and how you swallow down words

until only silence remains,

abandoned breaths still calling your name

let me breathe your secrets

i want to taste the pain you keep

buried beneath your skin
