Waves


“The water is fine,” you say
I’ve never trusted the waves
I tell you there is no way
Anything but watery graves
You look to me with pleading eyes
Trying to reassure my fear
You’d never feed me lies
You promise you’ll keep near

I am fearfully reluctant
I truly want to let go
A last look at the water’s glint
I submerge into the unknown
I wait for your embrace
I seek the warmth of you
I expect to see your face
But all I see is blue

You have vanished from sight
Leaving me to tread on my own
I am lost, this can’t be right
I really should have known
I spot you on the shore
You’re enjoying the view
Gasping for air, I am done for
I should’ve never trusted you
