Siren

The water

Not so shallow now

Deep pools of aquamarine

From which dread bubbles froth

 

The sensation of drowning

Safe in your bed

Falling into the deep

The deep inside your head

 

Know now

Where these currents flow

Find that dark home

In the deepest of trenches

 

I know not

Where tomorrow’s lights will hit

I can only know

It is that light I shun

 

Follow me

To redemption

Find me in the shadow

Of life’s long lie

 

I drown in the aether

Of the mind

Same as the water

That obfuscates truth

 

Nothing but secrets raise

From the deep

As fog clouds these shores

The self is beaten on the rocks

 

These transgressions

Against gods long dead

Still call their toll

From those depths
