Continent

Pearl
After pearl
After pearl
I throw

Spending my days

Deeper
And deeper
And deeper
I dive

Losing my air

Circus of soil, of sea
Ringmaster, surf dweller
Walk away, swim away
I lord

Freeing my soul

Ode To You

You might be the one
In cement there
At the bottom of the steep, steep ascent
Holding on for dear life wondering
Can I?

You might be the one
Under dark skies here
Unable to navigate or follow through 
Pining for your sea legs
What then?

You might be the one
Overcome now
Thoughts of what could go, may go, wrong 
Aching and afraid, wishing
If only?

Ascend and see
Look far and smell the salt air
Breathe deep and find
You might be the one
