Ships In The Night

Folder: 
Remnants

Somewhere in that water, beneath the starlit sky
You and I are only ships passing in the night
Travelling in different directions
Barely noticing the tides
Shifting our reflections
As we swiftly pass each other by


It's an unfortunate realization, that I've come to recognize
That you and I will always be ships passing in the night
Chasing our paths through oceans
Never meeting in between
Lost to our own motions
As we drift along the sea


I see that I can't reach out to you for light
Because we will always just be ships passing in the night

My ship was pirated.

And my sails were cut. 

The rudder was broken.

And I fell on my butt. 

I saw your ship,

Passed by in the night.

I couldn't yell out,

With my throat under knife.

 

Dang pirates!!

Always good to read you, RoC!

And that's why the rum's gone

Stormy waters, unsettled seas
Have no hold on those who always seek
The strength to reach as far as the eyes can see

Mat Kearney?

I'll have to look that up.
No, this is a revelation that a hope can be held, but remains just a hope.
C'est la vie. It is the yearning from which ink and art combine.
Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed and I'm glad to see you back again.
Looking forward to many more Ash-terpieces :)

You know me

I'm always late when it comes to pop culture :p
But I listened to it, and now I'll backdrop this with it. Cuz they mesh
