The tide comes crashing on the rocks,
that lay across with jagged emotion.
Waves break the silence and salt our wounds.
This storm; not predetermined, such cruel fate.
Hope one day the water clears to show serenity.
The ocean survives but reveals bleakness within.
Hearts clear the mind, hearts cleanse the soul.
Slack water brings peace where once was despair.
The tide soothes the broken foundations,
but the past will never be forgotten.
Intentions fade into defeat,
The sea tranquil, the soothing sands
And now I know why perfection is hollow
the sun descends, the breeze caresses feeling.
The race is straining but still i keep chasing
Moments never last,
rain will start to fall,
warmth still lies ahead.
Moments never last.
Beyond the sky,
an empty promise
from the ashes of a lie.
A vacant tide,
a calming breeze to cease the thunder.
The waters are calm.
