...From the Distant Shore...

I'm drowning


can't see anymore

while you're watching


from the distant shore

the tide comes in

as you contemplate your sin

the tide goes out

unheard as I shout

underwater I breathe

in my only reprieve

from the distant shore

you suffocate me

with your insecurity

that I did not create

and I chose to relate

to you in the most

emphatic way

but at the end of the day

I am sinking here

far far away

from the distant shore
