anchorless




Tomika set sail in her ship one day
From all that naturally held her to shore;
She pulled up anchor and sailed toward the wind
Leaving the aches that plagued her before.
Leaving the aches that plagued her before.

Her hair she braided and pulled it back-
And brandished a cap to be perfectly free.
"To the wind!" she shouted, and set the sails.
And her crew rallied with her to sail the sea.
And her crew rallied with her to sail the sea.

In her quest to find solace, her voyage became-
A gentle seduction of the waves and the sky.
She looked toward the shore, vowing not to go back
To the place that once blinded her delicate eye...
To the place that once blinded her delicate eye.

There are some that still see her, time and again.
A peaceful, emotionless, anchor-less bride.
She's known as the girl who cast off her desire,
And chose not to feed what was wanting inside.
She chose not to feed what was wanting inside.
