Empty Ocean
by Jill Renee' Lamonte

                                    cold sand
                            between my toes
                       behind the ocean
                         the dawn grows
                   irridescent light 
                         surrounds me whole
                                shades the pain
                                    within my soul
                                clear blue water
                                       color of my eyes
                                    look deeper in
                               where the truth lies
                        run hard to press 
                          the hatred out
                                my lungs pound fiercely
                                  to erase the doubt
                                       my heart was pure
                                     warm was my touch
                                  ridiculous things
                               that didn't mean much
                                  my devoted love
                                      was pushed aside
                                          emotions bruised
                                      the reason I hide
                                        purity I held
                          still new to express
                     he left without the innocence
                        he yearned to possess
