October 19, 2018 - Nature, Reflections

I woke up, lying in the deep
Choking, thrashing
All my strength, left to pleading
To the sea, push above, as to hold afloat
Cause I’m sinking, off on a lonely mile
Water, where I harbour my great delsuions
Pleading as I realise, my longing
Yeah she’s weighing me down,
Like blocks of cinder, to court the depths
Sea, my bad I owe you my respects
But now I yearn to break the bond
Plea, carry me across the sea
A loss I may cede to the depths
But a weight I free against my breath
Carry me across the waters more
Relief awaits me ashore.
