The Wave

 

I feel you coming

I feel you coming even before

—-I can see you.

——I feel you coming, even as

———night darkens above me.

————I feel you coming.

I’ve known you so long

I’ve floated here in your empty sea

—-alone for so many years.

——I’ve tasted all of your waves,

———you’ve tasted all of my tears.

————I’ve known you so long.

Just leave me alone to live or to die.

You want my heart, my soul? They’re yours,

—-they’re of no use to me.

——You want my breath, my life? Take them,

———they’re of no use to me.

————Just leave me alone to live or to die.

I scream and shout

I know I need help, but when

—-I scream and shout

——nobody comes

———I know I need help, but when

————I scream and shout

You wash through me

You push me this way; you

—-hit me.

——You pull me that way; you

———drag me.

————You wash through me.

I can’t go on.

I can’t scream, can’t shout.

—-I can’t resist, can’t fight.

——I can’t run, can’t hide.

———I can’t live, can’t die.

————I can’t go on.

And I know you’ll return.

I know you will return and you’ll

—-come back harder than ever before.

——And you’ll return once again, and you’ll

———leave me bleeding once more, and once more.

————And I know you’ll return.
