I am a dead dogs eye staring through violent tides,

I am Claudius cowering behind a curtain,

Elected as leader to deal with the uncertain,

I am your worst nightmare and saviour come true,

I am the rust etched on a sacred statue,

I am the sound of a banshee at night,

I am the tempo of your heart as you try to sleep tight,

I am your shadow, enemy and friend.

I am everything you could not be or understand,

I am the Sea.
