The Devil's Quill

Ocean Abyss by Lael Keller

Ocean Abyss


Blue ocean nights

Staring out into the sunset

As the water waves goodbye

And all there was left

Was you and I

I looked out into the vast world

Beyond our smitten eyes

And saw past the world of lies

Into the fiery violet skies

Our hands interlocked 

Like roots in the ground

Like two weeping willow trees

Our branches blown by the breeze

Will you follow me forever, please?

But thunder rolls at half past nine

Lighting flashes fierce like the sea

You hold me tight like we’ll be fine

But this is as fine as we’ll ever be

Waves are crashing

Skies are dashing

Dancing across your pillow

As you weep like a willow

You find yourself in the middle of the sea

It’s a dream but your free as can be

Mermaid tears, firefly kiss

Two years you’ll never miss

Because this is bliss

Rejoicing in the rain

Forgetting all our pain

Before midnight comes your train

I hope you dream forever

I hope you dream of me

I hope this feeling lasts

And that you never miss 

The water’s wave

The night conclave

The sea water’s kiss

Gently from the ocean abyss
