He passed through my life like waves in the sea,
Always moving with no regard for me.
The more I struggled, the faster I drown,
His best promises left unbound.
I should have left when I saw the tides turn,
Now icy waters leave my throat sore and burned.
I stood there like a fool, watching it happen,
The sand shifting under my feet, keeping me trapped in.
I had been so mesmerized by the way the water glistened,
That I never stopped to actually listen;
For if I had, I would have heard
Every lie within every word.
