Winner of the 2013 Leonardo Prize: What Lies Beneath

On the surface all you see
are ripples of love and devotion
but if you look deeply into their eyes
you reach the abyss of darkness

Being with them is endless light
entrancing azure eyes reflecting
a sea beating slowly and gracefully while
the sun soaks through the clarity

But, without them is like reaching blackness
an empty core of destruction
the endless depths of memory and regret
hold this lonely distance

In the end you realise all
the storms must be ceased
for it is better to leave the unspoken words
as something that lies beneath
