Nautical heartache


Apart from this torn wreckage

a leaking, sinking ship.

My mind waits so desperately

with water to my hips

I know the compass lied

although i cannot place

whether i was your captain

or just your hungry mate


They throw me rope for safety

but i have no powered strength

the waters to my neck now

and i'm numbing to this pain.

I know the truths inside you

but you're negligent to say.

i was never your captain

but, a starving hungry mate


we're entering into depths now

that i always feared so cold.

it's more than just a test out

the waters over flowed

and i hold this breath inside me

to meet you at the floor

in hopes that you'd be waiting

For your captain washed ashore.
