there are plenty of fish in the sea

their lustrous scales shimmer brightly

against the light of the scorching star

seeping into the cracks and corners

of this endless sapphire abyss

i’m drowning,

the saccharine waves

dribbling from my tender lips

are almost as sweet as you

a shimmer here, a shine there

my eyes are blinded

the warmth rushes through my veins

no longer am i a cold-blooded creature

but my heart is still bitter
