Hungry Lights
Prite & Promise
I had taken long to your shore
From within the febrile sea, I'd finally emerged
On the surface, I kept aspire to never stop
My muscles ached and I was torn

I deny that I am exhausted
-Soon to end
My paramour stood open-armed
On the sand where first took our glance
I'd keep the promise that I made along that bank

All my life, you're all I need
-The one to draw prosperity
Erasing you would be my fault, and I'd not cry

Stroke by stroke, my arms felt like concrete
I kept my head above surface
But I choked the brackish water
O' I seethed!
It pushed waves of death deep inside my head
-Vibrations of psalm
Amidst the swell, I heard you!

All my life, you're all I need
-The one to draw prosperity
Erasing you would be my fault, and I'd not cry

But as I inched the forward, how kelp bristled my feet!
Entangled in those fingers
And I'd no strength for a counter
It wrenched and pulled me under
I kept my hands aloft
I would not break my promise
Not here, so close to you!

O' I grabbed the strings and I dug into that knot!
Pushed to your shore, I stumbled out
All my life, I tried to be the one to draw prosperity
I'm wishing everything I drew was gone, and I'd not cry
