Beyond the Sea by Maria Fokas
Bear the whispers of a weeping hue,
To recall the moments of rapture.
Obliterate the cries of sorrow,
Words crippled by failure to thrive.
Misplaced memories of you;
Of all that you dream to be,
Plunge into the depths of your ocean,
Reclaim the path you pledged to engrave.
Do not forsake that endless need.
To be swallowed up by a timely dew,
Or tread the footsteps in that loose-leaf.
In the dawn of silence you always knew;
You turned the pages of that beautiful ride;
In the trembling of your voice,
The darkest story ever told.
“Stay with me tonight”
I wish it were true.
Pleasures of the heart can numb;
But, I plead with you tonight.
Do not disclaim your Ocean.
