Save Me - Poem by adeniran oluokun

The oceans and the sea breeze,
Please give me a fresh breathe,
Save me from myself cos I can’t feel what used to be,
A pain that is within my heart has become a way of life,
Everything seems not to be in its right place,
Even the sun that used to smile at me has been in tears,
The last words I couldn’t recall but I still see her face the smile and the trust between us,

The ocean wake and the sea tide,
Please drown me deep inside,
To a faraway place maybe outta space,
We used to be like the summer time everything fresh and green,
We had been through an earth quake before but this seems more like a heart ache…
Every single night I stay awake asking myself questions like
Am I dreaming?
My lips still missed her kisses my eyes still longed for her smile,
Her beauty was a thing that I got used to,
But now the bridge has been lost between us

Things we shared stuck to my brain and played back on and on,
Reminding me of how we had it all till this fall,
Now this cold winter is when am left without you,
This cold is both in my heart and on the streets,
My heart beats so slow because of the space you left within it,
I still see your eyes when I close mine,
Sometimes I think of myself as a desert and you as the water,
I thirst for your love like it’s the only way for me to survive,
I don’t want you back but I want you here every minute,
The difference lies in your eyes
