Tears flood my eyes and I have no reason
No words to tell you what is wrong
I hide my face
I brush away the evidence of my weakness
Once again I’ve lost control of this ship
The waves pound against the hull, and take me
Places I really don’t want to go.
All I long for are peaceful seas
Days where I can move freely and do what I want to do
Instead of these days bound in chains
Locked in the hold, unable to escape
The waves crash over the deck
Drowning everything and everyone
Sweeping them out to sea in a rage
And I am left alone
Unable to move, unable to free myself
I cry out for help, but no one can hear me
Did I really call out?
Or is it only a dream?
When the wind rises, it whips my voice away
Out into the night, where no one can hear
I am silenced.
I long for the comfort of others
But the chains are tight and I cannot reach out
