poetry

For my dear sweet friend… 

she sang of love 

beyond the lost 

found strength 

within her pain 

she didn’t look 

for the hate 

she gave the beauty 

it couldn’t take 

she didn’t ask 

to be understood 

but to be felt 

for the magic 

she let you see 

from a heart 

that couldn’t help 

but break 

because even battleships 

sink 

but for what 

the oceans take

they keep

so you can talk of her 

for what you 

misunderstand

about her waves 

but know this 

while you criticize

what you could see 

yet you couldn’t control 

you just deprived yourself 

from the treasures 

her depths 

had to offer
