I want to cut ties and jump ship.
The overwhelming urge to run
Never look back
I’ve got a heart as big as the sea.
Holding thousands of lives in it.
Watching the storms batter each one.
But they are in my heart.
I want them to be safe.
I want them to do well
I want them to be happy.
And each time they get dashed upon the rocks
It’s as if I was there as well.
As if it was my hull broken into drift wood.
Late at night
When I am feeling selfish and alone
I dream of running.
Of cutting all connections.
And just leave.
No more ocean of a heart.
