Moving on

by DBLevin

Just a soul lost in an ocean
of swirling emotion
lost at sea day after day
ever since the sun gave way
to this storm of loss and love
guilt and sadness rain down from above
And inside you wish for the sun again

But never, ever wish for that different pain
bright sun over calm seas
because below lurk violent memories
of the sadness you feel
When he brings flowers to heal
a love as dead and fake and gone
as those lonely flowers will become
dropping their petals one by one
like lonely whisps of memories
So when the storm clears
and the rain stops
don’t wish for what you had
just look around, to the setting sun
and the rising moon
and sail to the brightest horizon
