Liers



Sandy white beaches lie to my face,
Gritting their teeth.
Promising good times only
But I see through their beautiful disguise.
They are tarnished and deadly,
A watery grave.
A thousand lives expect not
What I saw that day.
A tragedy too cold
To even want to remember.
As the life of him drained away,
I'll never forget that day
When I floated in the sea.
It had tarnished, just like me.

Jackson Brown, Jr."Our street corners keep secrets, and our road signs only suggest, never deciding for us, never knowing if the destination to which they lead is where we truly belong." ~ Alex GaskarthAwesome youtube video(s) of the week: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCmRIFVH4O4&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV-HPOHu8mY more…
