My island in a sea of madness
The waves pound me
as I lose my grip on your steady shores
I want to scream
to call out to you, save me!
but I believe you cannot hear.
How can I tell you of the things I’ve seen?
How can I upset your complacent humor?
To share is to destroy
to lose forever my rock, my stronghold
and yet, to hold back
is to lose ever sooner
to erode our very foundation.
I seek solace in another’s arms
but the peace I find is only illusion
a numbing of the pain
of being torn adrift
from my rock
swept away into the churning sea.
