Vaulted Hopes

I live for moonless
Nights by the sea,
So that I may
Write my secrets
On black sand
And swim under the
Shadowy waves.

I have vaulted hopes
And sanguine wishes,
Of a life lived with you
By the briny deep.

And like butterflies,
Delicate and fragile,
They fly away,
Off into the stars
To live and die once more.

I close my eyes and breathe in
The scent of saltwater
And I feel free.

I know in the deepest
Parts of my darkened heart
Redemption lies in wait.

Because you are the beginning of something rare and the very ending of me.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
