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.
