There is a sea inside me
A vast ocean that knows no limits
It has the biggest waves this sea,
And even though I have never seen a wave before, I can almost touch them
They are flooding me, these waves
They rise from the pit of my stomach,
And then to my heart which they make ache
And to my throat which they make tight
And finally to my eyes, in which they plead to break out
Let the water out,
Be free from my body that holds them, prisoners,
They plead and plead,
And it never lets them out.
I hold my aching heart, my tightening throat, my dry eyes,
This is a different kind of sad,
It is time I got used to it.
