Do you see me buried 
Somewhere beneath the sand
Sifting between the grains
An hourglass in your hand

Do you see me sinking 
Somewhere beneath the waves
Rays of light penetrating 
Only darkness saves

Do you see me hiding 
Somewhere beneath the stone
The hollows that surround me
It’s there I make my home

Tell me, do you see me?
Buried, drowning, I hide
I pose a pretty picture
Somewhere except inside
