Sand or Sea

by lovealwayscath

I am a statue
Standing still
Eyes without use
Heart without a beat

Made my home on sand
The sun on my shoulders
Letting my feet sink
Accepting the inevitable death

Water lapped around my ankles
For years I thought everything was barren
I turned around and there it was
A moving sheet of diamonds

This desert behind me
Seems more beautiful than ever
The motion scared me
But I have wanted change

At last I took a step forward
The other foot after an eternity
Tempted by the unknown
Speed was gained

Heart first into the water
I closed my eyes
And dived deep into
A sea of you
