I ponder over parallel being
Remnants of a man worth his salt,
a shadow from the North
Once I spent
some thousand days out at sea with my love,
hopelessly devoted to the tides

To and fro,
a dance of brittle bones, old as the skies
I wonder how could I break on you now?
I’d lived in al directions,
unfazed through deception

Shadow North,
you’ve thrown me off course
No stars for guidance in absence of light
and I wonder why I couldn’t stop pretending by the riverside
And the river ran dry

Gently blowing my way (and the faultline shifting)
Shift to silence
Storm of the I
Thunderous crashing waves (they rise and they fall)
fall on deaf ears
The turning of the tides is a rush of blood away (and edging ever closer)
and raising new questions
Fury upon me
Wasted enmity (stand tall ‘till I’m frozen to the ~~~)
Frozen to the ~~~

I’m falling prey to solemn waves
Carry me away to unsettling horizons

Hold on for dear life, for the storm in my eyes is growing cold
Hold fast as I tear at the marrow
Bite down as I tear into the fabric of life
So cold in the eye of the storm
So cold here in the storm of the I
