Blood relationship bound us together,
Together we sailed through storm and hail.
That’s why when we ventured too far,
Became damaged by these jagged icy waters,
I couldn’t let the ‘ship sink.
I wouldn’t let the ship sink;
Because he was on it,
And he wouldn’t jump off,
Despite the flashing red alarm bell ringing:
Leave your mental baggage behind,
Break free from the bondage of your mind.
But he never jumped.
I couldn’t either;
Because I had promised myself that I wouldn’t again,
Not until another year had passed…
I guess “everyone has their price”
Their breakeven point.
That silver-slick-jaded-broken-piece of an ice berg
Somewhere in the ocean;
In the wide deep ocean of being.
A ‘ship sank.
