I am a teardrop in the ocean
a diamond shaped salt 
dissolved 
by the movement of waves
fierce and strong 
and i’m flowing under the surface
beneath little curls 
of ocean swirls

those fierce currents
invisible like a myth
from faraway naked eyes 
and when the thunder growls
you sail through the storm
where the ocean sings 
with another land’s song 
then we sing in fear
like the mermaids’ symphony
behind the coral reefs

deep and hidden from the stars
I’m flowing in the ocean
and you sail away again
upon the teardrops of the ocean
oh dear, can we survive this night?
from this denouement 
from the wrecking distance between us
that is louder than the storm
