The oceans speak more honestly
to those willing to drown,
I talked to the stars about you
most of them held my wishes for you.
I know your heart has no idea
of how to beat without aching.
Your body, a museum
for the art of letting go.
Give the flowers hope,
that are not blooming even in the springs.
They don’t know the stories behind your scars,
but you do and that’s enough.
