LOW TIDE


LOW TIDE

S.JENSEN © 2017

SCARS ON FEET

REMIND ME

OF HOW THINGS

REALLY ARE

HOW HARD IT

MAKES TO WALK

WITH FRESH MARKS

BLISTERS AND SCRAPES

SIGH

SUN IS SHINING

YET MY HEART

IS GREY

AND STORMING

IN A RAIN

THAT KEEPS FALLING

ENDINGS

ARE NEVER

GOOD

CAT DIDN’T WAKE

ME THIS MORNING

HE ISN’T WELL

CHANGES

THAT ARE IN

THE TIDES

ALL I HEAR

IS THE WORD

DONE

LOSING MY

INSPIRATION

LOSING MY

HEART

TODAY

MY EMOTIONS

ARE VERY LOW

I WILL BE OK

JUST IN

A FUNK

AND I KNOW WHY

BUT WHAT

CAN I DO

ABOUT IT

FOR A WEEK

ALL I HAVE

WANTED TO

DO IS SLEEP

ITS STRANGE

HOW WE RELY

ON THE

THOUGHTS

AND LIVES OF

OTHERS

TO HELP OUR

MOODS

TO GIVE US

MEANING

WHEN WE FEEL

SO LIKE

EVERYTHING

IS AGAINST US

IS IT A SELFISH

THING TO

FEEL

THAT JOY

THAT WAS THERE

NO I DON’T

THINK SO

ESPECIALLY

WHEN IT KEPT

A HEART GOING

FOR SO LONG

WHEN YOU DON’T

HAVE MUCH

YOU TRY

TO MAKE DO

FAMILY HELP

SOME

BUT ITS NOT

EASY

AT ALL

THE SIMPLE

THINGS

THAT MUSIC

FEEDS INTO

MY SOUL

THAT WHEN

ITS NOT THERE

HOW DARK THINGS

SEEM

EVEN WHEN

THE SUN IS SHINING

BRIGHTLY IN THE SKY

I BELIEVED IN

SOMETHING

BETTER

AND IT PUSHED

ME FARTHER

THAN I THOUGHT

I COULD BE

AND I KEEP TRYING

I KEEP GOING

CAUSE

ITS ALL I CAN DO

YET THERE

IS A HOLE

THAT

SIMPLY

JUST IS NOW

I WON’T BEG

I WON’T PLEAD

FOR SOMEONE

TO SHARE

JUST SOMETHING

NOT FEELING

WELL

DOESN’T HELP

MATTERS

MUCH

LOVE IS SUCH

A STRANGE

THING

SILENCE

CARRIES

AND

MY MIND

IS LIKE

OH SO THAT

IS ALL

THERE IS

NO FRIENDSHIP

NO NADA

ALL OR NOTHING

THING

SO MAN IT

FEELS LIKE

THAT LIFE WATER

YOU SO

GATHER

AND COLLECT

TO KEEP

YOU GOING

IS REACHING

THE BOTTOM

OF THE BOTTLE

EVERY DROP

THE RIPPLES

IN THE WAVES

DIE DOWN

AND

THE SMOOTH

SURFACE

IS STILL

NEVER THOUGHT

SOMETHING

SO SMALL

IN PERSPECTIVE

COULD

AFFECT

ME SO GREATLY

TO SEE

THE SPARK

TO SEE THE

LIVELINESS

TO SEE THE

HEART

THAT BEATS

JUST STOP

SETS MY OWN

HEART

SO LOW

WE DONT REALIZE

EXACTLY

WHAT WE

REALLY DEPEND

ON TIL

ITS GONE

WHAT MOTIVATES US

WHAT WE

SHOW

AND WHAT WE

CARE

AND HOW DEEP

IT CAN RUN

AND HOW

MANY IT AFFECTS

IN THE

SILENT CURTAINS

EVERYTHING

STILL TURNS

EVERYONE STILL

GOES ON

DOING WHAT THEY

DO

YET ITS SO STILL

THE WIND

IN MY TREES

THE BREEZE

THAT FILLS

MY LUNGS

IS JUST STILL

TODAY

I WILL BE OK

JUST

RIGHT NOW

I AM SO

MEH

FRIENDS

CAN SO MAKE OR

BREAK MY EMOTIONS

IT MEANS

SO MUCH

IN SO LITTLE WAYS

AND

I WON’T BE

SELFISH

I WILL TRY TO

UNDERSTAND

JUST SEEMS

MY MUSE

IS MEH TOO

WHEN WE NEED

THINGS THE

MOST

ITS LIKE

OH

WHEN ITS NOT THERE

HUN I LOVE YOU

I NEED YOU

THINGS ARE

ROUGH

AND I NEED THAT

LITTLE SPARK

TO JUST KEEP ME

GOING

THAT SIMPLE

THING WHEN GONE

TEARS AT ONES

SOUL

CAUSE WITHOUT

IT

NO ONE KNOWS

IF THEY ARE OK OR NOT

PUTS A

CONCERN

AND QUESTION

STILLNESS

RINGS

LOUD

ENERGY DRAINED

AND

GUESS ITS

JUST

WHAT IT IS

SO

I GO SLEEP

MORE

BODY IS TIRED

FROM

ONE HEART

TO THE NEXT

I CAN’T

BE THE ONLY

ONE THIS

AFFECTS SO

SIMPLE THINGS

THAT GIVE

US HOPE

I NEED YOU

I NEED YOU

DONT LET THIS DIE

NOW

BECAUSE OF

THE DARKNESS

HELP ME OUT

OF IT

PULL ME UP

AND I WILL

PULL YOU UP

GIVE MY HEART

REASON

BEYOND IT ALL

JUST THAT

SIMPLE SMILE

TO LIFE

TO KNOW

ALL IS OK

I DON’T ASK

BUT I SO NEED IT

IT MAKES

ME CRY

AND MY HEART

ACHE

SO SIMPLE

A THING

BUT OH SO DOES

IT REALLY

OH MY MUSE

WHAT WILL WE DO

I LOVE YOU

NEVER THOUGHT

SO MUCH

IN MY LIFE

DEAR FRIENDS

HOW MUCH IT MEANS

TO SEE

THE SIMPLE THINGS

OF THOSE

YOU CARE ABOUT

TO KNOW

THEY ARE OK

THAT WHEN ITS NOT

THERE YOU ARE

LIKE DAMN

IT REALLY

DOES

ITS SO FREAKING

HARD

WE GO ON

CAUSE WE HAVE TO

YET ITS LIKE

WHY DOES IT

HAVE TO BE

SO FREAKING

SAD

WHEN SOMETHING

ISN’T THERE

ITS LIKE OH

HUN I NEED YOU

SO NEED YOU

IT MAY SEEM

SO NOT MUCH

AT ALL

BUT TO SOME

OF US

ITS EVERYTHING

SO

EVERYTHING

RIDING THIS

EMOTION

THROUGH

LIKE ALWAYS

CAUSE I JUST

DON’T KNOW

ANYMORE

SO OH TO

MY SPARKS

THAT KEEP ME GOING

COME ON

NOW AND KEEP

US GOING
