Ocean eyes

Laura Nicole 1985 (Michigan)

When she looked out the window she didn't see the rain,
So noticed that something had taken away the pain,
The sun wasn't shining, but something had changed,
The dust on the window started to sparkle,
The raindrops began to dance,
The moment she stared she was stuck in a trance,
The air moved slowly,
Thick with emotion,
The tide came in with a force of the ocean,
The moon, lit up the night sky,
The stars were so bright she almost had to close her eyes,
The feeling she had kept so deep down inside,
Something started to stir,
She watched as the lightening bugs began to take flight,
Seeing clearly through the crystal sky,
She noticed a turning,
A change,
Something in her without a name,
That burning ache of desiring something that she never had,
Something that wasn't ever fulfilled,
Something she couldn't grab.
Painfully mourning the death of what was,
But something was created out of the loss.
Something so special and something so deep,
It made her rethink everything and even what to think,
Something so special, it didn't come with a name,
But a feeling,
Worth dreaming,
Worth saying it's name.
