On a deserted beach I wait.
Lonely in my own company.
With fears to plague me,
Akin to those of a lost child.
A dark stain shadows my mind.
Familiar hands close about my throat.
I struggle, full of fight to live,
Then awake, alone again.
My shell is my protection.
Torn from you I bleed.
You are so far away,
And nothing has changed but me.
Reliving an old love in her heart.
Insecure and terrified to lose.
Though I am safe from the usual scars,
Because you wait for me too.
