you led me down
the tide was drifting out
the clouds were shadows on the sand.
you told me how
we'd be by now
and it all made such perfect sense.
i tried to hold you, word for word, but
somehow i lost your voice -
the years between us drowned it out
and happiness now has no sound.
and as the shadows lengthened
we lay in golden twilight
the taste of salt upon your lips.
you let me drown
and even now
a yearning, longing, to be found.
in between the wrong and right
our conscience fading with the light.
a smile still plays upon your face
as all around begins to fade.
memories lost in broken dreams
are washed out on the drifting seas.
