Lonely Tide


The waves crash upon my feet

      Rain pounds in a hypnotic beat

            In comes the tide

                  As my thoughts move aside


The tide grows stronger

      It lures me in

            Tempting me with the thought

                  Of a world free from sin


It takes me down under

      I hear it crash

            Drifting to the center of the ocean

                  Home at last


I have wished of the sea

      Dreamed about it all night

            I can’t help but to feel

                  My decision was right


I have found my place

      Where none will criticize

            To be me, myself, and I

                  Without telling any lies
