Words tremble through your lips,
your eyes have seen sunken ships.
You’re afraid of losing it all,
waiting for the sea to call.
Mermaids wrapped their tails around you,
spun songs and thorns in your heart.
Bending your hope and breaking you,
still you wish for them once more to start.
Still your hands sink into the desire,
clutching your hope to the bottom of the sea.
You know you’re lost,
you see it in the deep sea.
