The memory of a moment
A simple, timeless, pointless moment
That would mean nothing to anyone but me
I walk along the edge of the ocean
Water caressing my feet
Sinking me into the earth
I turn to watch my footsteps
Slowly being dragged out
And feel sad that my life
Is just as fleeting as those footsteps
Why did lightning strike that moment?
I am plagued with the thoughts of what could be
Why do I always have to search for more?
Search for me! Someone
Manic again and praying for something
To relieve me of these feelings
I stopped it again.
Still unsure of who bestowed upon me the gift of freezing time
I see a dark wave coming towards me
It is out far in the distance
I can't tell how long it will take to come ashore
In between that wave and me lies a strange ocean
An ocean that I will never swim
