The dying oceans of her voiceless eyes
Every look comes to a standstill in time
She’s searching for some words adrift at sea
Searching for some words that bring her peace
Adrift at sea.
Proteus’ spell cast by her voiceless smile
Choirs of mermaids contemplate suicide
She’s diving for the words in liquid dreams
Diving for the words for as long she can’t breathe
In liquid dreams.
A broken oar steers her voiceless life
A slow, watery drowning, oxygen dying
She journeys for the words that will redeem
Voyaging for words, she sails on belief
She can be redeemed.
Adrift at sea
In liquid dreams
Words will redeem her
If she can catch them and release.
