Tick tock

Time goes by so slowly

Deep in pain

Lost in the river of

Agony, driven

Under by the

Undertow, gurgling

And trashing

Hearing only

The crashing of

The mighty

Waters as I

Succumb to them

Listening, heeding

The song of the


But it's only

A matter of

Moment of

Time before

I become one

Of the mermaids

Of the deep

For time is

The only

True mender

The true healer

All I have is

To wait for

Breath to leave

These lungs

For my blood

To settle

For peace to

Purge me of


And then I

Will arise

To meet

My new day
