Tears In The Ocean

Tears in the ocean

written by: Seorin Kae



The cold air penetrates the walls
surrounding my tears
the deeper waters
now up to my throat
the waves pounding
shaking the sand beneath my feet
sinking deeper and deeper
as I wave the tips of my fingers
my hands already lost in the growing darkness
I scream
but no one hears the faint whispers
already suffocated

I dare not open my eyes
to my own brokenness
fearing the wind and the waves
crashing against the rocks
stacked around a tiny window
where the sunrise
barely captures the dim light deep inside
fading slowly
and yet
I wave my fingertips
reaching for the window
reaching for the sunlight
slowly opening my eyes
facing the pain
mingled with cries of hope
cries for courage
where love prevails
