Red Sea

You left me drowning in a red sea of emotion

Making me map out the stars to predict your impossible current 

I remember the invisible stream

Broken free from my split chest 

That filled with the salt of the ocean 

That’s taste still lingers on my tongue 

Not as sweet as the sugar you once provided 

I have been choked by the waves of your hands

Taking my bones as their control 

As my lips are now Poseidon 

And I am a cracked statue 

For you are Medusa 

 I have survived each fear 

But have not lived well doing so 

Though I thrived well facing your love 

But I was not scared of you 

I was frightened of the heart that you have turned to stone
