In the Fathomless Deep

Updated on April 12, 2018

I didn’t mean to say it

but I said it anyway

you didn't want to hear

the truth I had to say.

The waves in the ocean

upon which emotions sail,

the pain and the sorrow

must be endured every day.


You walked into wilderness

I walked into abyss;

the shadows fell behind us

eclipsing all the light there is.

We had walked together once

now each walks alone,

lost in the pondering

and meandering of lost souls.


What if we had foresight?

Or known what it would be?

Questions lie unanswered

in the fathomless deep;

could we have stemmed the tides

that were surging up to rise?

The bridges were coming down,

it was too late, anyway.

      This is very beautiful. Tragic, but beautiful.
