Starboard at Starlight.

A small ship is set in the sea..
There's seems to be no movement...
The anchor holds steadfast.

The winds are slow and steady..
The breeze is blowing comfortably...
The scene peaceful and still.

A lone sailor sits at starboard..
The horizon shines in his tired eyes...
Ever-patient, he sits waiting.

His Siren one day may come..
To Her song he finds himself addicted...
But without warning, she left.

He believes in his adventure..
As does the village where he came from...
Their faith may be misplaced.

He is the same but changed..
Stronger now to withhold these waves...
Like the Siren that swims away.

A sailor dies on the deck tonight..
With the waves, the buoys wave farewell...
How long did he wait?

As his spirit fades away at dusk..
He finds her song indirectly on the waves...
Can he grasp back to his body?

Dusk now turns against daylight..
The moon illuminates this sorrow scene...
They may only have till Midnight.

Do we rely now on the Lighthouse..
Did he need more light on the bow to find her...
There was no damage to the wale.

Starlight finds us waiting..
To see his body lying in the dawn...
Ever-patient now the Siren?

But the waves will always pound..
The ship hull moves and tosses about...
But the anchor holds steadfast.


Striving for a Star.

I've seen planets divide
Shooting stars that collide
And places where men have not seen.
I've seen galaxies folding
And black holes closing
But I never can seem to get clean.
Because I want to be shown
Where angels cannot roam
I've given up labor for flavor and lust.
Surpassing what makes people die.
When confused if Life's worth the try.
I've lost all intentions to find someone to trust...

But as time passes on
And the old worlds have gone,
And all these new stars appear;
You can go on forever
Holding my heart as your treasure
Standing guard against all that you fear.
Because I can't explain why,
No matter the manner I try,
The feeling cuts through my heart like a knife,
And no matter how you may cause me pain,
Somehow this fact will still remain,
That I will love you the rest of my life.

So whether we only stay friends
Or together in Life's how we end,
I promise I'm nothing for you to fear...
No matter the pain you may cause,
I know that you have flaws,
So know that I'll always be near.
And I really want you to know,
No matter which way Life may go
I'll never forget how you look, sound, and feel
For the bright colors you've made,
In my life full of grey shade,
Creates a perfect picture that's always real..
