An Ocean Between

Her heart had frozen beneath

With eyes now glazed he wondered

Would she glance his way

And yet he looked with intent

Hoping she would notice

He could see possibilities

His chest fluttered

Like the light, the warmth

In a fireplace burning through

Her head turned, she smiled

In that moment when everything begins

His world was turning

Exploding with life

An ocean beneath him

And just as steady as the sea

The world stopped


And nothing else mattered
