May All the Dreams We Shared Drown

The Deep

What was once an ocean of roiling black pulling me under

waves crashing against the shores of a place that once was

I watched as every fiber of my hopes and dreams

Collapsed into the sea along with me

Now here I float somber and quiet

My tears and screams have long since drowned

My questions were never answered

And the crashing waves only stopped

After they had torn down the world I had built us

I will not drown along with these stupid things

Not even the horrors of the depths will stop me

From seeking a new flame to dry every last drop

Of murky black suffering from my bones

May every last thought of you drown down there

Amongst the wreckage of the deep
