A Watery Grave

I Shall not kneel...Beyond the depths
 Of the tears... Long since have fallen...
 Nor shall I gather... Again amongst them..
 'Less their untimely stage of demise... 
Binds the hands of space and time..
 And I ripen into a single grain of salt..
 Amidst their long standing...Watery grave...
