The Ocean is Dark, The Ocean is Deep

The ocean is dark, the ocean is deep
A bereaved berth to rest a weary heart...
A mournful place where regrets softly weep

Those blind souls who carelessly sowed and now reap
Their constructions of trenches and tall ramparts...
The ocean is dark, the ocean is deep

An aqueous prison into which clarity seeps
Too late for drawing new maps—or depart...
A mournful place where regrets softly weep

This sunless place, my secrets it keeps
Of the ghost of me who lost her chart...
The ocean is dark, the ocean is deep

The muddy bottom, in obscurity steeps
Countless memories of mistakes and false starts...
A mournful place where regrets softly weep

Please do not wake me, let me sleep
I have no hope, no life, no fresh start...
The ocean is dark, the ocean is deep
