She Has the Ocean in Her Eyes

She has the ocean in her eyes:

he saw that as she spoke to him. 

But with his words she found his lies,

and thus the trouble starts again. 

She has the ocean in her eyes:

you saw her sadness everyday. 

Even the waves could not disguise –

the pain she felt when he’d gone astray. 

She has the ocean in her eyes:

he looked away in fear of her. 

Nothing that beautiful should ever cry –

but he doesn’t know what caused her tears. 

And then the moon comes out to play –

and her pupils sink like a broken ship. 

The oceans’ currents, the tidal waves –

Collide together because of him. 

She had the ocean in her eyes:

the saltiness and freezing cold. 

And though he loved her, though he tried,

he could not fix her broken soul.
