Sea Of Anguish - Poem by Yoni Assis

You made me vanish
After that heinous ambush
So here I languish
In a sea of anguish

Banished to the sea
An exile, not free
So much for that lifeline you always promised me
Pulled the rug out from under me

The ocean's big enough for two
How long before Johnny Rotten's joining me, too?
Oh, right, this one's 'true'
God forbid he too drown in the blue

The water isn't all bad
No more perfect location to be sad
So be sure to thank your dad
Make the old man glad

Blasted, let the waves crash down!
Let it wash me to town…
Will you manage a frown
Or hire a clown?

Amazingly, I find bliss
Just as I'm sucked into the abyss
Now love to miss your kiss
Revel in the sorrow of what I so miss

No longer languishing in my sea of anguish, I flourish
