“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


Waves claimed you
Like the arms of a siren maiden with
A conscience,
'Cause they spit you back up onto
The shore
Before your insides could become an
Ocean within
You,
And when you were a desert again I realized
How you would actually
Die,
Not by a mermaid's kiss and a stolen
Soul,
But by the trying to travel the
Mouthwatering
Distance
That exists between the oasis of my desert
And yours;
Yeah,
I think the mamihlapinatapai will
Kill you faster
And then what's the use of your lonely
Soul?

Mamihlapinatapai (n) - two people looking at each other hoping the other will do what both desire but neither is willing to do
