Gasping for air, I struggle to breathe...

The Wave

.

I stand on the shore and watch it approach.

I stand on the shore and watch it approach. Gasping for air, I struggle to breathe

I stand on the shore and watch it approach. Gasping for air, I struggle to breathe - - - the sight of it fills my legs with lead,

I stand on the shore and watch it approach. Gasping for air, I struggle to breathe - - - the sight of it fills my legs with lead, Heart racing, I can only wait.

I stand on the shore and watch it approach. Gasping for air, I struggle to breathe - - - the sight of it fills my legs with lead, Heart racing, I can only wait. Glassy eyes reflecting the terror to come.

It races forward in an unstoppable sprint,

It races forward in an unstoppable sprint, Reaching for me with each break

It races forward in an unstoppable sprint, Reaching for me with each break Screaming my name in its roar

It races forward in an unstoppable sprint, Reaching for me with each break Screaming my name in its roar Unwavering in its focus

It races forward in an unstoppable sprint, Reaching for me with each break Screaming my name in its roar Unwavering in its focus Daring me to face it, even though I know the inevitable end.

A wave set in motion cannot be stopped

Running would buy time,

Running would buy time, But the wave is so close

Running would buy time, But the wave is so close and the roar is so loud

Running would buy time, But the wave is so close and the roar is so loud and I've been running from it for so long already

Running would buy time, But the wave is so close and the roar is so loud and I've been running from it for so long already Long before I even knew it's name

Steadfast but lightheaded, I wait for impact

It won't be long now, I can barely hear my own thoughts over the roar.

Shining eyes holding back tears

Shining eyes holding back tears Hands shaking as the salt sprays on my skin

Shining eyes holding back tears Hands shaking as the salt sprays on my skin I smile

I smile

I am ready

The wave looms overhead

The wave looms overhead before crashing down

The wave looms overhead before crashing down - - - - a wall of pain

The wave looms overhead before crashing down - - - - a wall of pain Water fills my lungs

The wave looms overhead before crashing down - - - - a wall of pain Water fills my lungs - - - - convulsing, my body fights desperate for air

The wave looms overhead before crashing down - - - - a wall of pain Water fills my lungs - - - - convulsing, my body fights desperate for air where there was none to begin with

Suddenly

Suddenly - - - - - - - - - - - - - calm

Open your eyes

Open your eyes - - - - and take in the beauty surrounding your crater of desolation

- - - - tranquil suffocation

- - - - tranquil suffocation It finally ends.
