i exploit my emotion for words on a page

i put words on a page to release my emotion

but this time around not a word or a phrase

can carry this weight as heavy as oceans

carry this wait, eternally open

 

im not at all worried or vaguely afraid

but the pit of my stomach is deep as the ocean

exploit my emotion for words on a page

i put words on a page to release my emotion

put words on a page to make peace with the ocean

 

words on a page are just words on a page

nothing less, nothing more – not even emotion

when done writing this i will set it ablaze

and sprinkle the ashes throughout the deep ocean

sprinkle emotion as deep as the ocean
