Rain pounds her bow
Waves swirl high round
Wind tears mainsail
Lightning strikes the sea

I have been cast from my home land
They took my name

Waters flood in
Men beg their gods
Splinters sinking
Dark depths take us

Drowning in salt
Death won't take me
I clutch her skull

The surface looms
I breathe again
Looking back
On our ship
She is torn in two
Waves slam remains
of the hull and crew

Blackness overcomes my eyes
