"Rum Diary" as written by and Daniel James....
Were you afraid 
when you ran out of breath?

When the water touched your lips?


I heard a voice
Calling like a ghost

But then I
I lost it again



Where does all 
the living go

Running from 
the undertow

That never ends

Drags you down

Into yourself

Without a sound


We live and breathe

The centuries

As I was then
So I will be

Drowning under 
my beliefs
Where were you 
to comfort me?


Hurry in like a child 
getting dressed to leave

Trying not to forget anything
You took the world with you into the darkness

But didn't bring it back


Where have you gone?

What are you hiding from?
