Once again the waves of sorrow have come crashing over me,
Again the sweet sensation of misery has appeared in my life.
Each time it grows stronger, more powerful,
Each time it’s harder to remain in control,
To stay afloat in this sea of despair.
 
I can still see the beauty of happiness,
Still feel the gentle burn where it caressed me.
Yet once again those lonely, sorrowful waves have found me,
Found me and dragged me into their depths
From which I will never return.
 
I can no longer feel love or joy,
All this cavern allows is the cold kiss of hatred and misery.
All I hear are sweet whispers promising an end,
Promising my death.
I know that if I reach out I could touch the whisperer,
Touch him and save myself from the never ending doom.
 
I’m drowning, dying in the depths of this sea of pain,
I sit squirming, tortured by sweet whispered promises,
Promises which are always broken.
I no longer need anyone, anything,
There is nothing I desire,
The deep dark waves took everything away.
 
The pain, the sorrow, the hatred,
They have destroyed me,
Left me unable to escape the cold caress of loneliness.
All that I want is to know my fate,

Am I ever to escape this torturous sea in my mind?
