The sailor looks upon the horizon
Seeing a beautiful isle
Waves the crew to dock
Heading for the shore

As he reaches his destination
He sees sweet fruits
Tall trees and shade
And long elegant beaches

The sailor looks out
Back at the sea
Remembers his sense of love
But pushes it down with another drink

After time
The sailor cannot take it
And as nobody else shall leave
He takes a boat and makes way

Weeks later in the open ocean
Weak and dying, hungry and thirsty
He closes his eyes
Then a smile portrudes

I am but a burden,

Fare thee well sailor dear.

May the seas harken,

To your commandeer.

When you love someone so much, you're willing to let them go, though your heart longs for them every day,
every night.

one day I found a ship
a wreck on the ground of the sea

within I found a chest
I decided to take it with me

it had a name written on it
letters I could barely see

as I found her
she looked at me

she was finally free
humming a melody

"my husband was a sailor,
he left me for the sea
and when he left he took my heart
but you returned it to me"
all those years he treasured her heart in that chest
and when he fell he took it with him
to the ground of the sea
He had long hair, a regal handsome face
Iridescent scales, we loved to embrace
I was in the great Navy
He, my lost love from the sea
My enchanting merman, my heart would race

Green restless ocean, bring his love to keep
My merman of the depths of the vast deep
Tears beget dreams of sorrow
To awake, kiss him morrow
The pearl gift he gave me glows as I sleep
he left me for the sea

and when he left, he took my heart
and never returned it to me

It's always you against the world but it's
Okay to remain silent
To sail through your endless thoughts
Be in your world,
Alone wandering like a traveller of the night

It's okay to be alone.

The day feels unbalanced.
The night feels haunted.
Faces, changed by sodden tears.
Eyes awake but no light behind them.
Everything is switching, on and off.
Friends fall close, some fall away.
Remember them when you speak of them one day.
Stained by morning guilt as the sunrises, touched by shining silk.
A web weaved by the tip of your tongue.
Locked out of life, floating away.
Days float by in a sea of disarray.
One day, on the street.
I'll be brave enough to say hey.

By that time we will be too far away.
Siren, she lures and enchants.

black, macabre treasure hunt
pirating for souls
mermaids singing songs and lies
waves that demons lull

ships that sail toward candle lights
dying in the wind
searching for where angels sleep
while all they do is sin

waters moving restlessly
from whence lost sailors came
monsters underwater creep
and the driftwood floats away

Lightning bolts embroidered on swaying hips;
two oceans roam with potential danger.
Come take a sip of wonder - if you dare;
let the water guide home the lost sailor.

As the sunlight fades
And the winter chill is near
And my tan lines linger
I can still feel you here

The warmth of your touch
And the depth of your gaze
The gravelly sound of your voice
Simply sets me ablaze

Though oceans between us
While you’re out to sea
My memory lingers on
The first moment it seized

A warmth without measure
The following days unforeseen
That entropic affection
Traveling through the scenes
