That will never be...
by Melissa Bingham Baker

I sit inside the darkness, 
scared of what I'll see. 
I want to jump and live my life 
beneath the raging sea.
I reach for some companion, 
some lover in the night
but only bring back sadness 
and memories of the fright.
In this life I'm useless, 
no one cares for me. 
I search and search for happiness, 
but there is none to set me free.
I wrap my arms around myself
finding that's not what I need 
and pray for some glimpse of spring 
so I can plant a seed.

I sit inside the darkness,
no one to call my name. 
I light a little candle 
but there's only a feeble flame.
I try to spark a fire, 
some resemblance of my past, 
but the wind just blows it out 
and the fire never lasts.
I wait here in the darkness,
wanting you to be 
here within my solitude 
to pull me from the sea.

I once sat in the darkness, 
surrounded by the sea, 
waiting, wanting love again...
but that will never be.
