You spend your days acting in a questionable manner,
Feeling your thoughts drown in the depths of your mind.
Everyone around you knows you are acting strangely,
But you pretend and persuade that all is fine.
The void you feel in your heart weighs heavily,
Making you feel guilty about your mysteries this coming night.
You sink into your bed and try to block out those sentiments,
Trying to pretend that what you have is perfectly right.
Now you’re diving into the oceans depths,
Searching for those striking and exciting pearls.
But something haunting lies ahead,
Drifting you around the sea in an unremitting whirl.
Pearls in hand, you begin to uncover the dark truth.
You no longer have someone to share those passions with.
Goodbye are the days spent celebrating our youth.
Perhaps those moments were nothing more than a tormenting pith.
The diver who journeyed with you is forever gone,
Now only one friendly diver remains.
You hope the latter will match up to the first,
But he’s left above where shallow water detains.
