The waters are rough

Tide is coming in

Stranded on the rocks

I call out your name

I feel the waves

Lash out at my feet

Trying to knock me over

To catch me off guard

The mist stings my face

As the waters wage a war

Drowning out my voice

No one can hear me

Still calling out your name

No one can see me

Now shrouded in the fog

But you won’t come

You’re nothing but a ghost

A mirage to play tricks on me

I am trapped in the echoes

Of a voice that doesn’t exist

Doomed to seal my fate

As you move on to the next victim

I struggle just to survive

The seas of deception

Alone, lost and frightened

You were never a friend
