Dull you shine
Bright even on my darkest day
but never for me
I see right through
the pellucid waters
of your ocean eyes
I know they see me not
Despite the ocean depths of despair
through which you once accompanied me
They care not now though they
once conveyed an effervescence profound
was the raging love that from us
would not acquit. Now behold, so quick
you're free as the wind to everyone
So now you're the dulled diamond, priceless
worthless when the love runs dry
And still, dull you shine, but not
to me anymore
