Shipwrecked Heart


You drew a line
in the sand,
and I crossed it.


I jumped into the waves
of your love
without wavering.


Even though red flags
lined the beach,
I risked it all
to know your shores.


But I caught a gust
and crashed
against the rocks...


a shipwrecked heart
marooned by
unrequited love.
