Scary, yet comforting this feels
Maybe like a lone island feels in a sea
Like I might drown in you
Or in secret, you’d protect me.
Can’t let the world realize
That the sea holds the island deeper than they know
And each time its waves crash the shore
The island melts in love a little more.
I wonder if the island ever wonders
That there is plenty of its akin away at sea
How much longer until the sea has to wash it down
Or if it’ll discreetly forever let it be.
The island knows no world beyond the sea
And the dependence kills it little by little
The sea perhaps does its best
But each day ends up soaks it brittle.
It’s scary, like the melting island I’d be
Giving in each day to your sea of advances
And maybe a day would come where your tides would turn
And the island would crumble with subtlest of your nuances.
The lone island knows not the vastness of the sea
But its depths, it realizes and loves with insane strife
The sea can protect or the sea can consume
But without the island it harbours no life.
