Sore

staring sideways at the sun
surfing shortwaves for a sign
of something, anything
sifting sand through sweaty hands
you second guess
your shifting stands again
but then

she'll submerge your sunken splendor
her stretched out sunny smile
makes you soar
she surrounds your shrunken shadow
her sad surreal sighs
make you sore

stumbling, shaking, sick as sin
you shred your sloppy
second hand smoke screen
slowly sinking like a stone
that slurping sound
as you're sucked down again, but then

she'll submerge your sunken splendor
her stretched out sunny smile
makes you soar
she surrounds your shrunken shadow
her sad surreal sighs
make you sore

and so suspend some disbelief
and shrug your shoulders
save your soul some grief
or slither softly like a snake
and shed your slimy, scaly skin again
what then?

she'll submerge your sunken splendor
her stretched out sunny smile
makes you soar
she surrounds your shrunken shadow
her sad surreal sighs
make you sore
