I Betrayed the Sea
I never thought I would betray the sea.
Fracture our promise through its very core
The essence of beauty was clear to me
My once fulfilled self, yearns for something more
Music from shells no longer ring as sweet
I've left the soothing mix of salt and air
And abandoned the sand against my feet
Forgot a sky I thought could not compare
The sacred vow between us is broken
I've found another shade to admire
Easier to leave with words unspoken
But I cannot hide my new desire
I betrayed the sea when I saw his eyes
So blue, so green, my God, they mesmerize.
