Stormy Sea

I'm so fucking screwed.

Whimsical, spiritual, and honest-to-goodness, really beautiful.

Is it theoretical?

I'm so fucking screwed.


I'm not convinced it's real. Maybe I'm resisting how I feel,

Because I'm so fucking screwed.


Fortuitous and unimaginable, I'm lost at sea.

I was just getting used to it just being me.

No lifebuoy can save me from this lively boy.

I'm hesitant to be thrown around like a child's toy.

I'm so fucking screwed.


With the winds of change and a steady sail,

I'm hopeful I can prevail.

Maybe I'm not so fucking screwed after all.

Because everything feels better after the fall.


A hint of sea salt air, a smoke, and a bloke,

It's not just a dream or a really bad joke.

But I'm still so fucking screwed.
