Blue-eyed Ocean

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #322
Bits and Pieces

"Think of your situation as bits and pieces and how they had influenced you. To take Hampton’s quote, what places have you been, who have you loved? What song best describes you? Or book quote? Have any interesting adventure or had a very meaningful late night conversation? (We don’t need the juicy details!) Are you mesmerized by the moonlight, touched by starlight? 

You see, we are all a little of everything we’ve encountered. Your poetic voice is another piece. Use it to cover this prompt."

Blue of my eyes
reflect the ocean
I love.  I used to
think I could fix
broken people, 
because no one else 
would choose me.  
I wander in my Alice
fantasy where all things
are possible.  Moonlight
is my inner color, yet
the tranquility I count
on, is not attainable.
I have moved to various
cities and states, 
but keep coming back
to the same old me.
My eyes are the ocean's
salty blue.
