Treasure Island

B.. Alexander


The Cold Sea


The cold sea
And the life we shared
The cold sea
And the way we kissed
The cold sea
Stretches on
For me...

Twisting inside
The water raging
Twisting inside
The biggest wave
Screwing up in me
Then straightens out for me
The coldest scene
The cold sea
Answers everything
For me...

Why do you have to die
Why do you have to leave
All there is goes into the ground
I shut my eyes
I wanted to believe
But all I've seen will die with me
And all I've said will end with me
And you go on

Whenever I require
I drink from the sea
Whenever I need
I dive into the sea
The twisting in me
Cooled by the sea
Twisting inside
Straightened out for me
And dying with me

Thirsty, such a thirst
Straighten out for me
Straighten out for me
In this cold sea...

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
