Washed Out to Sea

Washed out to sea, discarded in the rain, here I stand naked before you again. It’s been too long since we said our final goodbyes, yesterday you were leaving, tonight we lay staring towards the star studded sky. I’ve not forgotten the broken smile hidden between your lies, I’ve not forgotten the night that spelt our tragic demise. Now I hear her calling. My name laced with sincere regret. Washed out to sea, discarded in the rain, here I stand naked before you again.
