her shadows in the water

there’s a shadow in the water
that reminds you
– of the secrets in her eyes

and the lines across the sands
remind you
– of the scars upon her mind

they once said her eyes were as peaceful
as a mexican beach

but the ocean across its shores
have done the craziest of things

there always was the anger
but you were so good
– at acting innocently blind

she always had a temper
but she tried oh so hard to be kind

there’s a shadow in the water
that tell of the secrets in her eyes

and even on the sandy beach 
her tears are on your hands
– and scar upon your mind

even on the sandy beaches
you long for her love in that bern land
– for her shaking hands

and even in the light of dawn
there’s darkness in her eyes

and even in the light of dawn
– her ghost is at your side
like the haunting little shadows
even after
– you’ve left the night behind
