Shall I compare thee…

Words fall like stones into the sea,
Thrown into the gulf here between me
and you, falling into a blue
fathomless depth out of my view,
truths that I hope will set me free.

Can I begin to bridge the sea,
Build a path from me to thee?
Into my mosaic, all of blue,
Words fall like stones

A fool to go uncautiously
building a path across this sea,
seeking to find a way that’s true
through a watery maze of blue.
To build a bridge from you to me,
Words fall like stones.
