Silent Flight

What lies beneath...

What lies beneath a sea of numb

Where ships of heart were taken down

Sunk to the bottom with the one

I hated and I meant to drown


For in its hull it carried pain

Instead of what its purpose was

And thus I had immense disdain

Because it never carried love


So yes, I set it in my sights

Then fired all I had and more

Carpet-bombing through the night

To sink it to the ocean floor


And when it finally disappeared

I flew away and did not know

The other ships were likewise pierced

Doomed as well to slip below


They sank at random, one by one

The ships of pride, and hope, and fear

Of aspiration, sad and fun

The ship of peace, the ship of tears


The ship of drive, the ship of will

No ship was spared, the plight went on

They fell, and fell, and fell, and fell

Until at last all ships were gone


So now in silent flight I go

No signals come as were before

No guidance from the sea below

No hope of landing anymore

The End
