The man who tamed the sea

A body soaring on thin air

A soul weighed down due to a held breath

Two eyes that promised me a wave

And lips drawn straight from ether

 

I stretched my arms to catch a ghost

I stretched my legs to walk on those pathways

I left my sanity evaporate

Within me nothing but a futile dream of the sun

 

And you, nothing but reflections

Of light on the prisms of water vapor

And you, all I wanted to embrace;

A nostalgic outcry of my grace

 

The ocean had never felt so calm.

Twas your touch that made it catch the sun.

The abyss hasn’t even kept its sound

And as the ether frames us, everything feels simply done.

 

I can’t recall the word you said

When I felt young and you were holding my hand

I can’t recall the strangeness

We found on leaves that screamed to the touch of the wind.

 

And you, nothing but reflections

Of light on the prisms of water vapor

And you, all I wanted to embrace;

A nostalgic outcry of my grace
