We sit here.
silent sentinels of the sea
gazing at the cruelties
in that the sailors frolic
We were just like them
Till they took us away
into the depths so blue
And now so are we.
Why do they lash us
upon the rocks
strangled our throats
as we breathed the sky.
like fish on a line
till we were
like lifeless anchors.
Revelers in our misery
trapped like weeds
entwining a soulless wreck
no one visits
us in this prison
As lonely as the lighthouse
