Today I wrote his name

Today I wrote his name in the sand
But the waves came and washed it away.
Again I wrote it with a second hand;
But the tide crept back, to make my love his prey. 

I watched his name disappear-
Away into the endless journey of the ocean;
Though I wish he was here, 
I'm left alone in this commotion. 

My reality seems to be masked in agony. 
It no longer seems to be in my nightmares;
It seeps into my consciousness effortlessly.
I've come to endure it. 
I've come to welcome it. 

Now I dream of jumping into the sea, 
Drowning in the waves of loss and pain;
Having my heart sink to the bottom
In search of my lost love-
And give our love its desired liberty.
