A sleep broken by a curious dream
the path appeared in front of me.

The ground dissolved beneath my feet
and no horizon could be seen..

I awoke in the abyss
a place I scuttled memories

And now the rusty hulls, they shift
escaping this dark, lonely sea.

No end to this quiet night
These eyes can’t close
I will not sleep
Streams of thought
Begin to flow
I drown in my futility

The lantern flame I thought blown out
emits a glow within it’s glass

And rusted relics raised in spite
of welds once broken in the past..

Moonlight at the surface
while she walks along the shore…

And here she’ll leave her footprints
on the soft white sands once more..
