It called to me,

With undeniable voice.

From the midst of a sea,

Like siren's song.

Tried to desist,

Found I could not.

Tried to resist,

Release- inevitable.

When it came again,

I welcomed the flow.

The pain did lessen,

But did not go.

It sang of victory,

As it sank in,

I accepted gratefully,

The blissful release.

The path it burnt,

Blazes still.

I have not yet learnt,

To quench the flames.

So it resides,

Waiting patiently,

For when to rise,

And take control.

I cannot fight,

Should I give up?

Relinquish light,

Accept defeat.

For that is all I can do.
