A Losing Battle

Back on the harbor
Watching day fade

Keeping together 
This castle I’ve made

Fighting the ocean
Standing my ground

Talk to the water
Making no sound

It’s falling away
Under my feet

This earth where I perch
Keeps purging me

Turning the tide
But just in my mind

I push it away 
But it wins every time

It washes over 
Taking my sight

No obstacle for 
This force am I

So small and helpless
So very tired

Appeal to the heavens
But those stars may be liars

Weary and wary
And worried tonight

So inconsequential
Is my sorry plight

The moon only chuckles 
And the earth merely sighs
