letter to saint ebb...

By Nixx

I hope you're well
I hope this somehow. Somewhere. Reaches you

I wish I held on to your words
I never fully appreciated them back then
Wish I could read them all over again

When you said my sadness was beautiful
That I was beautiful..
Your words kept me alive when I was under the sea.

My sadness hasn't got sway and I'm not as sensual now
But I have strength!
It's uncontainable like a wave
Part of a bigger driving force
Unstoppable with one goal

You'd be proud of it.
Maybe my stubbornness not so much...

It's been one and a half decades since your words danced like music through my mind
You got stuck there somehow and my thoughts linger on you often
After all these years

I wish I could hear your words
Know you more
See your face
I hope you're well
I hope you're happy
