They’ll always be unable
to handle your depth.
You’ll always struggle
with the weight of secrets you kept.
You’ll always be labelled ‘sensitive’
But that’s because you know too much
of how broken souls live.
but it’s all over their heads
whilst you let it sink in.
You’ve travelled over every rainbow
of emotion from beginning to end.
And no its not always been a pot of gold
waiting in the hands of so-called friends.
Guilt rides through you when you share too much
when you break through fragile humans
with your poetry and your mind’s touch
But DO IT AGAIN, don’t you dare run.
Be that unapologetic ocean,
crash and roll and drag them under
Shake them to the core like thunder
Cause when you rise….
You’ll push them back up to breathe.
And in their hands they’ll grasp
sand or shells or pearls or magic from beneath.
No one knows it yet and sometimes you forget
that there’s more, skin deep? No, there’s always more
So let your bare feet sink in, let them get wet
Cause you, you’re that passionate kiss the ocean leaves upon the shore…
