Broken Windows ~ Cheron L'Estrange

what should I do
when the windows to your soul are smashed,
lined in broken glass
and I can't fix them
your salt washed cheeks
are licked by shadows
of shark infested ponderings

lights dim and disappear
wave after wave crashes
through the sea-weed green
of my ocean eyes
and I become
plagued
by a need
deeper than the darkest thoughts
dwell

  2. "your salt washed cheeks

    I love this:
    "through the sea-weed green
    of my ocean eyes
    and I become
    plagued
    by a need
    deeper"
