You were the ocean. I was in love with, I had this whim. But I was too scared to swim. Too scared I would drown in your presence And lose myself in the Waves. The salt would burn my wounds. And I knew I wouldn't be able to escape the current once I dove in. So I didn't even try to splash in the tide. But everyday I live wishing I had.
