Lullaby of the sea.

Your dark,deep beauty overwhelms me,
Sitting here as far as the eye can see.
By your virgin shores I stand tall,
Drinking in the silence, the pain of it all.

Deafened by the quiet, mauled by my past,
My hands shaking, heart beating fast.
Release me from these chains, I implore,
I don’t want to be a fool anymore.

Sing me a lullaby, sweet sea,
One that will anger, infuriate me.
One that will drive me right to the brink,
And my mind would be clear, nothing to think.

Only think of a place where I can let go,
Of all my cares, all my woes.
Let me embrace your subtle majesty,
Use it to create a false image of me.

Yes, I am happy,yes I’m content.
Yes, this is a life well spent.
Yes, I’ve made a difference, I’ve done my share,
Yes, I’ve left behind people who care.

Throw a veil over my eyes, great sea,
Something that will momentarily blind me.
So that, for a few moments, I’d live a lie,
No questions, doubts, how or why.

Fate’s played its tricks, it dealt me my cards,
Shattered my life into a million shards.
Broken my spirit, cruelly quelled my dreams,
I fell and got up many times, no one heard me scream.

Left me in this shell, without my soul,
Eaten me alive, buried me whole.
Left me for dead, gone away on a whim,
Chuckling, to find its next victim.

I ask for freedom, a chance to soar,
I won’t be back to bother you anymore.
So grant me Sleep, dear, dear sea.
And let the waves of death wash over me.
