what the heart meant

i meant to listen
your words dripping -honey
i mean you no disrespect
your talking about wisdom
and other stuff and all i want
are arms to wrap me

once, this land treated me -fair
cloudless the sky
and stars to twinkle
the moon shined on your smile
of late -your doors, windows and walls
keep me from feeling warmth

this ocean is cold
the only place you yearn
a self to sacrifice
my burning desire
evaporates what is left
of you.
i walk alone

my footsteps engraved
this sand no longer free
you hold back the ocean
for me
the best you can do
as you fall back asleep
the ocean, the moon and you.
