Sea of Heartbreak


Lost at sea of heartbreak
Ocean of despair
Sour tears of loneliness
Catch currents in the air
Raging for a moment
Then timidly it fades
Time stands still around such thoughts
Dreams cut like razor blades

Spines hold callused fingertips
Not rugged, roughened steel
The demons came out yesterday
Preparing for their meal
Today they feast on love and hope
Devour sunny days
They live off greed and faulty truth
Sordid are their ways
Sneak around and eat the flesh
From tattered, beaten souls
Rip away what they’ve got left
Rake them onto coals

Fiery furnace raptures
Screams no longer heard
Underbelly of the beast
Chows down every word

No surrender to the monsters
Promise lingers on
Though blood laced visions moan and drip
Sing a righteous song
True hearts stand together
Never claim defeat
Breathe courage
Live strength
Take leaps of faith
Angels don't retreat
