a poem inspired by twist and shout
love transcending time, returning over and over,
as faithful as the sea, some things were ment to be
I mixed ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ and ocean noises. Now excuse me while I go drown in a puddle of my own tears.
"I love you, so promise you’ll be like the ocean
and come back to me, even when they pull you away.
Always come back to me.”
“So take my hand,” he sang, and his voice was falling apart,
he could barely hear himself over the wail of the machinery,
“take my whole life too…”
His fingers remained in the hollows of his cheeks,
thumb brushing over his lips. I love you.
