Tidewater Love

You found me washed up on the shore of broken dreams

The place where many others were found dead

Or so it seems

I was choking on words

I was choking on atmosphere

I had been lost in the current so long…

I had to adapt to what was here.

And You

You who rescued me from the waters…

And made me your token pearl,

You can’t keep me in a bottle…

Keep me in your world

So you’ve found something great,

And you swear you won’t lose it at any rate.

But I’m not a ship in a bottle…

Waiting there for you to fondle.

You have to let me go…

Set me free!

Love me only in your mind!

Because Darling,

It wasn’t meant to be…

And You

You who keeps me in a jar…

Hiding me from anything,

Everything, 

That tries to come near my heart.

I’m dying…

More than I ever have before…

You found me washed up on the shore

Saw a light

And wanted more.

So, here I am in your cage…

I’m dying!

Oh, My love I’m dying…

My soul is dying…

Love me,

Leave me be…
