We never had oak island
I always wished we had
I never was named by you
Or claimed upon your sand

That moment you let yourself
Be dreamt into my arms
Was always to be recoiled
In the waves of silence
In your heart 

What use was my love
That emptied to a hollow sea?
Of salt and fog
I woke to the land falling
As shadowed cries of you. 

I wonder which lover gutted
Your slender, fleeting smile
The tracing of scars littered
On fencepost in your mind

Your words spoke of nothing lost
Fractal, shifting light
Yet, even the blind can't ease
The husked debris of passing eyes 

What use was my love
That emptied to a hollow sea?
Of duned memory
I woke the wind scattered
Pieces of all that we held
All of our truth
Nothing but worn out sleight of hand
Were we just mirrors of our need? 

What use was my love
That emptied to this hollow sea?
Of translucent years
I woke to the isle keening
For one real moment with you. 

We never had oak island.
