A Fool's Odyssey

It is when I try too hard
that you fade.

But I can't stop now,
flowing through to you
Against this relentless deafening current,
for this stupid love.
My skin peels away
beating against the jagged boulders
Missing a thousand times
the jaws that stand waiting.

Don't you see?
That it is my nature
to kill myself
to love you.

But I can't stop now
'Cause either way
it is the end of me.
And I won't let this end
Without finding my way home
back to you.
