The only people who don't get anywhere are the people who don't dream of a better place for themselves...

So many times you've looked at me,
Denying it all, 
Watching me shatter beneath the beauty you speak,
Making me dream that each word was for me...
Only me...
Why, sweet love,
Haven't you had enough pain?
Dear, my...
Why are you my only desire?
Can't I look away from such eyes?
A blue sea of seduction and simpleness,
I've allowed myself to drown...
Far beyond the surface of all I thought we were,
Just deeper...
And still alone...

Never yours again...
My darling,
Save me...
Kiss me...

Just one last glittering sensation,
Before you leave me,

To cry,
Into What We Were Before.

The author's comments:
Eyes are so beautiful, aren't they? Especially Blue(: this is about how I see someone, how I adore him, bit he can't see it in himself, so I basically am drowning in not my pain, but his. Because he doesn't see how beautiful he is to me.

I love the words "what we were before" I think u made the emotions u felt wen u wrote this come across very well. Good job, good job, good jb. AGAIN!
