Between Time

I swear I know how it feels
To be placed between the tides
As you see yourself struggling to catch a breath
As you pity your soul begging the unknown entity
To show a mercy you know is no more
At least not that you will see it here
Your tears mixed with the ocean
Your feelings are dwindling and fears fade away
I can hear the voices in the distance
I yearn to catch a phrase of my own
To let you know I wish to be there
To let you know that many a thing I wish to say to you
If only I can beat the hand of time
If only I can leap into the world before me
But the more I yearn the more I turn my back to it
I love to be loved I love to be pampered
I love to be here when the tides are high and low
I want to be here when you need me the most
But the hand of time is neither here nor there
I don't think I am sitting on the fence
But I see myself between times
Between life and between death
I'm neither gone nor standing
But all I know is I'm insignificant to being
I think I'm a hollow mill powered by a force I can't fight
The time between I am and I want to be
Its strange but I guess that's the beauty of a mystery
Between that time you wish to live and you fight for it
Yet the time is appointed for your demise and your fight is in vain
