The Frozen Wave

The Frozen Wave

A Poem by Nervana Zahran

Oh darling,
you got caught up in the wrong chaos
I should've stopped you while I still could
I could've left with you to the other side

Oh darling,
I wish I saved you..

I drowned in an ocean of misery for your loss
swam one thousand miles to end up in the island of regret
I cried a lake and screamed to be saved;
To be heard
But the demons of my past were the only ones to respond
They kept me company since the day she left the home I’ve built for her
So I scratched my skin every night to destroy what was left
I realized that I couldn’t possibly destroy her without destroying me..

So I let her be,
I let me be.

I've built a boat with the memory of her smile and tried to move on,
I tried to reach out

And I'll hang her on the wall of all the beautiful things that could've been but didn't get to be..
I'll draw the shadows of her reflection in the skies every night
And swim back and forth through the waves;
wash out the pain that time couldn't erase

My darling,
I drag myself to the same old place and sing the song of guilt and shame
But I'll stop right there..
And I'll remind myself that even stars shined so bright in your eyes when the world seemed so pale
I'll hold on to what's left and drain the ocean without a blame
To let her be,
Let me be..
And wait till the dusts collide so we might meet again.
