Acid Rain

Drifting through the currents of my mind,
I find myself lost in a sea of thoughts.

Through high tides and low,
in the shadows of darkness we’d roam.
We weathered the storms together,
but now this journey takes me alone.

I counted the grains of the sands of time,
as we built their castles and they fired their shells.

Days turned to weeks, to months, to years,
time passed as we stood still.
Marooned by ghosts from lifetimes past questioning why we were ever here.

Let me sleep tonight,
untouched by this acid rain,
let me close my eyes,
let me forget the pain.

Worn out stories like broken records play,
as the daylight fades away.
Please save me from myself,
please take my nightmares away.

Let me dream tonight instead, of love and laughter and light.
Let me remember the good times,
let me bask in childish delight.

I’m frightened by the vastness of this ocean,
and what lurks beneath its waves.
What might come back to bite me,
when the sunlight starts to fade.

Sharks circle around our heels,
as we tread water in a dying world.
But the only thing left to find here,
isn’t even real.

Shipwrecks lined our shores and we asked ourselves, how?
Salt water burns into my cracking pores,
it’s too late for apologies now.

We fought against the flow,
but were pulled further out to sea.
Everyday fading faster,
banished by long lost memories.

Our eyes reflect broken souls,
Haunted by voices of the past,
The sirens song that lured us,
To a long forgotten farce.

Let me sleep tonight,
untouched by this acid rain.
Let me close my eyes,
Let me forget the pain.

Worn out stories like broken records play,
as the daylight fades away.
Please save me from myself,
Please take my dreams away.
