I long to take my sorrows

And write them in the sky

To hang there in remembrance

Of salty sea blue eyes


My trespasses are weighing,

My madness on display

Another victim falling

To my storm of disarray


My heart is beating shallow,

Battered and abused

All of my own doing,

The bleeding and the bruise


Yet surely burns the fire

That flickered on the edge

The slowly dying ember

That pushed me to the ledge


My soul’s a raging tempest,

My ship’s been hurled and tossed

Yet it cuts the waves with wisdom

When it seems that all is lost


So patient in my cabin

Will I navigate my course

And stay the path of passion

And steer with no remorse.
