Saved

Shades of blue waves reflecting in the mirror
The air is so still now, she can’t breathe
Mascara runs down her hot cheeks and onto the pillows that brought her dreams
Her eyes burn from the sunlight pouring through the window

Her lace chemise torn, stained by tears
Her bones feel broken by loneliness
The voice in her head whispered lies to steal her passion
No lyric, no letter could ever save her from that profound moment

The ocean screamed her name, she runs to it
The salt of the water hurts, but washes her clean
An urge to rise up and gasp for air takes her
She kicked hard to reach the surface

The rough hot sand on her back told her that she was born again
