“The Ocean, The Beast”

Lost in the waves.
The red flows in the wake
and I can’t breathe…
swallowed by the sea.

Are you coming up?
Or falling under?
Sharpen it up.

Jagged teeth tearing at my feet.
They’re dragging me out,
tearing meat from my bones.

Lost in the sea and I can’t breathe.
Would you drag my body back?
I’d never ask for that.

And If my head ever severs from my body,
my lovely, pull it to the beach.
And if the waves ever crash on me, let me be.
Let the unsung sea carry me out like a note.
